My Students

My students are resilient. Each and every one of them are faced with adversity and barriers that prevent them from learning like their general education peers. They have all found a love for learning regardless of their disability. They crave materials and lessons that will engage and provide opportunities for growth.

My Project

This project might not seem as essential as others, but the materials on this list are essential to my learners.

These are materials that will help my students grow their academic knowledge in an organized and calming environment.

On the list, you will find supplies like dry erase markers, markers, erasers, and pouches that students can have as individual sets to help the spread of germs. There are building toys students can demonstrate their creativity during unstructured time, such as scheduled breaks for behavioral students. Light covers are to reduce the harshness of the lights for my light-sensitive students and there is so much more. I hope you consider donating to my project, so I can provide my students with a classroom full of materials they can use to learn and grow.
