My Students

I have eight students in my classroom. They are all identified as being on the autism spectrum, and some have other disabilities as well. My students are nonverbal. Most of my students have sensory disorders, and they need different types of sensory materials to improve their fine motor skills and develop their sensory skills.

My students love coming to school and really enjoy hands-on activities.

It is my job to teach them and show them the steps to accomplish their goals. Every student has a different way of learning, and I will help them to learn as much as possible. My passion for teaching cannot be measured with words but with actions.

My Project

My students need different materials to increase their level of creativity. Preschool is the best year of children to encourage them to start implementing their ability to create new ideas or objects. When you give the students different materials of crafts, e.g. glue, markers, and glitter, they use these simple materials to create a fairy galaxy, or draw their favorite place.

By donating to our project, you will help preschoolers to expand their imagination to create new and original masterpieces, such as the solar system or a beautiful card for mother's day.

My preschoolers will have the materials they need to let their ability along with their imagination work together.
