My Students

My students are autistic and have severe learning difficulties. Most of their learning is done using technology and hands-on activities to help relieve their anxiety. They enjoy doing most of their work on their iPad. My students are hands-on learners who want to stay busy​ while having fun.

We are located in a high-poverty area.

My students are from different grade levels from kindergarten to fifth grade this year. Every day with my students is an extra day full of many surprises.

My Project

Help me give me my students a new microwave that they can use to pop popcorn when they are hungry through the day. Sometimes they do not like the lunch food that is being served.

My students are picky eaters and sometimes its difficult to find a lunch they like.

If they don't eat a good size lunch they are hungry through the day and it becomes difficult for them to concentrate and complete their undesired tasks. We want them to be successful and it becomes difficult to keep having to walk to another area of the school to warm up their food and then have to walk back to the classroom where they are eating.
