My Students

I am so excited to teach 15 classes of scholars from 6-12 years old and nurture a community of learners where academic, social and emotional growth is fostered. Clay P. Bedford said, “You can teach a student a lesson for a day; but if you teach him to learn by creating curiosity, he will continue the learning process as long as he lives.”

My "Kidos" come in every day excited to learn and share.

We work hard to work hard. My students embrace the fact that we all do better by working collaboratively.

My classes have a wide range of abilities from autistic to gifted. we know that by respecting our friends in our class we are respecting ourselves.

My Project

For years we have taught reading, writing, math, and science.

Schools today are teaching social and emotional skills which help students gain skills in consciously regulating their actions, which in turn leads to increased readiness to learn.

The items that I have selected are to work in conjunction with a social and emotional curriculum that our school has adopted called ZONES OF REGULATION. The focus is on teaching mindfulness and calming strategies. Building social-emotional skills put the scholars in a position where they identify their emotional state and soon learn to regulate it by using some internal and external tools.

The Outlet Liquid Motion Bubbler for Sensory Play, Fidget Toy Activity, Fidgitz Twisty Brainteaser and the Light Filters for Every Season are found on Autism websites and are highly recommended for room modification for special need students. To set them up for student success.
