My Students

I have a great class with ten energetic and vibrant students and three wonderful paraprofessional aides. All of my students have various IEP goals, behaviors, and speech delays.

My students are in Pre-K/K and are diagnosed with autism.

I currently have ten students, a number which will gradually increase at any moment. None of my students are able to effectively communicate basic wants, needs, and emotions. Currently we are using picture icons to support their communication needs.

My students are energetic, bright, and very eager to learn. They range in age from 3-years to 5-years old. Our school is a Title I site. My students come to school to be loved, appreciated, and taught. They have lots to overcome, but they still come to school with smiles on their faces that brighten up my day. These little ones are learning so quickly! In less than one week the newest of my students has mastered using picture icons for their daily schedule and has done so well with following the classroom routine. We work every day on their various IEP goals, social skills, and their speech and language acquisition, strengthening their fine motor skills along with our new curriculum.

My Project

Our class is growing with the new materials that have been donated by our previous projects. For example we need new book shelves, as our current book shelves are going to be thrown out as they are over-used and ready to go. We need new storage to store the new materials, as our current storage units are ready to be thrown out after many years of use and they need to be replaced for safety reasons.

We have been fortunate that we have new materials for my students that we need new storage units to house them.

Safety and reliability is key for the success of my students as we use the various learning materials that will be stored in these storage units.
