My Students

I teach kindergarten through second grade Autistic Support in a Title I school district. My classroom is in a public inner-city school with students who are returning to brick and mortar school five days a week.

In my classroom, my students are working on improving their communication, behavior and academic skills.

My Project

In my project, I am asking for masks, ear savers and laminating sheets. We have had many students and staff out the past few weeks from the virus. The masks will help everyone in the classroom to stop the spread of germs. I am asking for a variety of mask colors to make it more fun. I am also asking for ear savers. Wearing a mask all day can hurt your ears. With the ear savers we will have less pulling on our ears. The laminating sheets will allow us to easily clean paper materials and use them again.
