My Students

Welcome to our classroom family! I am fortunate to teach at a Title I school in Colorado where I am reminded daily by students to smile and appreciate the little things in life. The students and community that make up our school are strong, ambitious, and caring.

I am the teacher of a special education classroom for students who have moderate to severe autism.

Our classroom family is currently made up of 11 energetic boys who are very eager to learn! The boys are a mix of both kindergartners and first graders. Our class is very close, and our boys are loving and compassionate towards their peers which is seen in their daily interactions.

Working at a Title I school and being a first-year teacher has already taught me so much. Having the opportunity to interact with the students that make up this school is a daily reminder of the positive impact we as teachers can make on a student's life.

My Project

I am requesting a sensory ground swing, a variety of fidgets, Theraputty, weighted animals, and fine motor tools.I have a wide range of needs in my classroom and not enough resources to meet them. When my student's sensory needs are not met it causes them to feel uncomfortable, disrupts their ability to focus, and become upset.

These sensory outlets would provide a toolbox for my students when they are upset or need a sensory break.

It can be very difficult for students to identify the sensory inputs that they need, but in order to do this they need options! This project would provide students with options to meet all sensory needs; visual, tactile, vestibular, and so on. The goal of this project is for my students to be able to independently ask and identify what they may need as a break tool.

The sensory ground swing would be an amazing resource for my students who have difficulty sitting still and benefit from a back and forth motion. The variety of fidgets such as the mudballs, desk maze fidget, and fidget feed me fred would provide my students resources to access while they are in their general education classrooms that would not make them stand out. The addition of these sensory tools would allow my students to stay calm, focused, and ready to learn throughout the day.
