My Students

This is my first year teaching high school students with intellectual disabilities. Two of my students require 1-on-1 aides due to more severe needs. It is the type of classroom that you want to come to when you need a dose of happiness and joy. These children are sweet and tenderhearted.

The more I am with them, the more I want to give them everything I can because there is so much they have had to do without.

Their personal stories would break your heart. While many of these students have faced difficulties they never show that on their face or in their attitude.

They are forgiving, loving, and sweet! They teach me so much about looking at people and the world in a different way. They teach me that not everything can be understood and that we as humans are so complex and too quickly put into a box. They can do more than people give them time or credit for. But the one thing I believe these students do better than most is showing kindness, and that doesn't get old when there is so much hate in the world. Thank you in advance.

My Project

My students like any students need a comfortable and relaxing work environment where they can thrive and grow in. Feeling safe, cared for and comfortable are huge in their progress.

I have selected items to enhance the serenity of the room and sensory input for my students needs.

The garden fountain will be placed near their work tables where they can enjoy the sound of nature. The essential oils is used for our diffuser that promotes uplifting mood and clean air. The coloring books are fun art time for my students and promote stress relief, joy and creativity!! They seriously love these pages...and so do my aides;). The The alt rock lamp plug in provides a nice ambiance near computer stations and purifies air.

Thank you in advance, these students are wonderful!
