My Students

I work with a variety of high school-aged students who have various learning disabilities and individual education plans. As a result, my students receive educational services in either a sub-separate class or a resource room setting.

Many of my students come from lower socioeconomic backgrounds and could use additional support with technology to help them access the curriculum.

Some of my students have language disabilities, others experience challenges with attention, and others are on the autism spectrum. They are struggling readers and writers who, with the right tools and support can continue to make solid academic progress.

My students are sweet, funny, bright kids with diverse backgrounds and needs. Many are English Language Learners. They are a lively group of scholars and it's a pleasure to work with teens who want to do the necessary work to overcome their challenges in and out of the classroom.

My Project

Many of my students are in desperate need of backpacks either because they are worn and have seen their fair share of usage or because they have lost one along the way. My students could use an extra hand in purchasing a backpack and a starter set of morning toiletry items.

My students need backpacks to store their school supplies and books, as well as a toiletry bag to store toiletry items that are needed for use on a daily basis.

My students could use an extra hand in purchasing these items because they do not all have the means to do so. With all of these items accounted for, my students will have the basic essentials that they need to be ready and prepared for their school day.
