My Students

I love that I teach Early Childhood Special Education blended classroom. I get the best of both worlds teaching students with diverse needs. My students come from families of lower income and higher needs. Life is already challenging, but having a Pre-K program that serves families without any need for anything to bring to school is amazing.

These students need diversity, emotional and social support, and even more love!

I love teaching students; those with higher needs makes it just that more rewarding to see their growth when their world is sometimes not so pleasant. My students' smiles makes my day.

My Project

All of these would make our classroom even more comfy and enjoyable during learning through our day!

I specifically chose these items because having room comfort in our classroom as we learn through play is important in Early Childhood.

Everything we do is learned through play. We need a good rest also because sleep is one of the main things that our children lack. Giving them new sheets would be a blessing!

Having a new rug would allow our students to have more safe on the carpet during our learning times. Throughout the day we use our rug for circle, centers, and music time.
