My Students

My students are smart, kind, and polite teens with special needs. They absolutely love coming to school and greeting each other with warm hugs and smiles. My classroom consists of sixth to eighth grade students with diverse learning and communication needs. Most of my students come from low income households with limited access to technology. These students absolutely love coming to school each day and are always ready to learn. They care about each other and always try their best to complete any task asked of them. My students would be so appreciative of any help you could provide!

My Project

In our classroom, we like to document all of the fun learning experiences we do throughout the school year. These experiences include cooking, field trips, dances, and experiments. My group of special needs students love to take pictures of themselves or with their friends. Our classroom needs ink, photo paper, and a gift card to TeachersPayTeachers so that my students can make their own scrapbooks with photos taken throughout the school year. For my remote learners, they can send me pictures to print of themselves while they are learning from home or while they are in their community. My students will love sharing their scrapbooks with their families so that they can see all of the fun things we do in our classroom and how much they are learning. This school year has been a memorable one and I would love for my students to document their successes!
