My Students

My amazing school is a service to all school districts in Lorain County whose students are unable to attend their home district due to the need of a more structured and appropriate educational environment. Most of the students in our school and in my classroom receive free or reduced breakfast and lunch and are living in a low income area. My classroom serves students with a range of disabilities including: intellectual disabilities, autism spectrum disorder, Downs Syndrome, physical disabilities which hinder mobility, and specific learning disabilities. Although all of my students face every day challenges of living with severe disabilities, they arrive each day filled with excitement to see their teachers and peers. I am faced with the daily challenges of providing great educational and life skill lessons on no budget. Teachers within my building are using their own money each week to supplement the curriculum and engage students in unique and exciting ways. Please consider donating to my classroom to help the educational journey of my amazing students.

My Project

My students with social needs are desperate for some sensory tools that will help them get through the long physically and emotionally demanding school days. These tools will help them achieve success in our daily lessons and activities. Due to the various needs of our students, tools like the sensory light cube and set of sensory tool kits are a necessity.

Every day my students come to school ready to learn but their various disabilities make it difficult for them to stay engaged in the lessons they must complete.

Every one of my students requires time to regroup and the items I am requesting are what we need to help my students be successful in school.
