My Students

My students are in kindergarten through fifth grade with mild to severe disabilities, including Autism, Down Syndrome, learning disabilities, and communication disorders.

"The best way to interrupt the cycle of poverty is to support children's physical, socio-emotional, and educational needs." - Cheryl Suliteanu

Help my students to successfully participate and enjoy school! Our elementary school is in a high-poverty area, and many students come to school hungry. Not all of my students are able to participate fully in their general education without extra support. These materials will help my students learn how to be successful, independent, and happy in life.

My Project

Thank you so much for taking the time to read about my project. My students mean the absolute world to me and I always strive to give them the best materials possible. These sensory materials will be such a great addition to our new school wide sensory room. The sensory table can be used for many things including water, sand, and beans. The color changing light and fiber optic light are great tools to help the room feel calm and cozy and help children to calm their bodies down. Thank you again for supporting my classroom and my students. We are so appreciative!
