My Students

My students are energetic special needs learners. We are constantly looking for new ways to keep them focused while allowing them to move around. My students come from all background and cultures.

My goal is to have a safe inclusive classroom where all students care grow and share.

I work with each student individually to help them with individual goals and kindergarten readiness skills.

They are curious, enthusiastic and creative and are ready to be challenged. I want to do all I can to encourage life long learning.

My Project

These books will help my children learn about different types families. They will also help teach them about how families are the same and how they are different.

Books are a good way to spark our children imagination and stimulate their curiosity.

We will use unifix cubes to practice counting, making patterns, and also adding and subtracting. They are a great items to use for various math activities and can also used for students that have difficulties using fine motor skills.

Thank you in advance for your donation! Not only are you donating to our class, you're donating our future.
