My Students

I wouldn't choose any other place in the world to teach except in my current school district! My school services many diverse students and over half our student population is bilingual. We are located in a quiet neighborhood with a rich Hispanic culture. It is, however, in a low income part of the city so lots of our students benefit from school resources like free breakfast/lunch, extended after school hours, community food pantry once a month and a school closet of clothes and other care products for students in need. Being a part of such a community is very rewarding experience everyday.

I have the honor and privilege of teaching children with intellectual and developmental disabilities who range in age from seven to ten years old.

My students possess a great deal of ability. Ranging from students with autism to down syndrome, it's not my students' labels that make them extraordinary. As a teacher, I look at my students for their awesome abilities and talents, like the ten years old who can build a replica of the Titanic out of construction paper, or the young man who discovered tap dancing.

My Project

These materials will help us finalize the supplies we need for our school production of Alice in Wonderland. With these supplies we will have finished our costumes, started our collection of props and have some of the tools we need to build our set. This production is helping our students celebrate The Year of the Arts as well as has helped with an outlet for self expression and even some behavior issues. This play is a great extension of their literacy skills as well! By funding this project you are helping our school wide community share the magic of theater and bring literature to life!
