Mrs. Martinez from Orange TX is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

My Students

My classroom serves students with disabilities ranging from kindergarten to the 5th grade. My students have varying disabilities from cerebral palsy, Down Syndrome, traumatic brain injury, intellectual disabilities, and more. Our classroom is specially designed with instruction that is targeted to meet the needs of each individual student.

Our campus is currently closed due to extensive flood damage sustained during Hurricane Harvey.

We are temporarily located at another campus within the district. We are moving back to Mauriceville soon! We will be using portable buildings for at least a year while our school building is repaired.

My Project

My students need a comfortable place to sit down together for engaging group learning. My students do not thrive sitting at traditional desks and tables all day. They often need to stretch out, lay on their stomachs, or bounce on their feet. They are movers. I have one student with cerebral palsy who enjoys getting down on the carpet with the rest of the class and is much more engaged in the group activities.

Due to the recent flooding from Hurricane Harvey, my class is currently on another campus working on concrete floors or small carpet samples.

In the very near future, we will be moving to portable buildings with the white industrial hard tile, where we will be for approximately 18 months.
