My Students

My students are bright preschoolers and kindergarteners with special needs. They are three to five-year-olds with various disabilities including autism, cerebral palsy, other health impairment, and speech/language delays.

My students are from low-income families and almost all are English language learners.

Some have just arrived in the United States from Mexico with parents who do not speak English. Despite the many challenges they face, they come ready each day to learn and play with the most positive attitudes.

It has been a true blessing to watch my students learn and grow. Their determination and eagerness to learn are what fuels me. These young scholars amaze me every single day with their big hearts! A day in our classroom consists of enthusiasm, energy, and excitement. Every accomplishment, big or small, is celebrated!

My Project

As an early childhood educator, I will always try my best to provide plenty of opportunities and resources to enrich my students’ experience in school. My students are young and naturally have high energy levels. We learn and play all day in preschool.

I want to support all my learners by providing access to a sensory-rich environment.

Many of my students have Autism with sensory needs. Sometimes sensory problems leads to behaviors such as meltdowns and disruptive behaviors (hitting, screaming, etc.). Weighted animals and movement sensory soxs will help decrease stress and promote a calming effect on their sensory system. This will allow them to focus better and participate in all activities.

These items will make such a huge difference for my students and help them learn in our busy class! Thanks so much for helping us!
