My Students

All of the students in my class are special education students. They are put into my class because of their unique behavior or academic needs. Our school is a Title I school, with a large part of our population on free and reduced lunch.

Each and every one of my students have diverse learning and behavior needs.

It is a special passion of mine to be able to provide to these students with one on one, targeted and focused support.

My Project

I am working in a classroom with students who are severely impacted by their disabilities. It is important to allow these students the ability to express their sensory needs, as well as working on their fine motor skills and hand strength through play. My project will allow these students the materials needed to safely explore their own sensory needs, while also strengthening their fine motor skills! They are fascinated by kinetic sand, and all the different ways you can play with it, and having large containers to keep my room clean will be an amazing opportunity to allow them to relax in school!
