My Students

Our school is located in Los Angeles, California just a couple miles away from USC (go Trojans!) We are Title 1 School with about 100% of our students coming from low-income families. Almost all of our students are minority students and English Learners.

Room 3 is a Transitional Kindergarten - 2nd grade classroom.

My students are on the Autism Spectrum. Autism spectrum disorder is a developmental disorder that affects communication and behavior. Students with autism face challenges with social skills, nonverbal and verbal communication, and may exhibit challenging behaviors.

My goal is to give these students the hands-on, real-world, and enriching learning experiences they need and deserve in order to succeed in and outside of the classroom.

Our students come from different backgrounds, cultures, and have different likes/dislikes and needs but in Room 3, we are all learners. Each day opens us to new experiences and adventures. Our days together are never the same. Their learning differences and remarkable characteristic traits are exactly what make them so special.

My Project

What is something many of us would love to do in our spare time? Some of those answers include: laying out by the pool and catching up on a book you've told yourself you would finish months ago or simply lying down and having some time to yourself. That's exactly what my students would love to do!

Children need to be given opportunities within the school day to read for enjoyment.

Research shows reading for pleasure improves literacy, social skills, and academic success. The students would have a designated area in the classroom to relax and read. After choosing a book of their choice, they could either sit or get really comfy and plop down onto the floor loungers. It is my goal to create a positive experience around reading that will encourage the students to become lifelong readers.
