My Students

I am a first year New York City Teaching Fellow who is working at a District 75 school in The Bronx. This September, I will have my own class and my own students. I am so excited!

My students are on the Autism Spectrum and are absolutely fabulous.

They are smart, fun, curious, love to draw, love to dance, love to play instruments, and most importantly are always eager to learn. And when they are silent, they are never silent to me.

My Project

As a first year teacher and finally getting my own classroom and students, I am hoping to create an inspirational space that is both welcoming and comfortable for ALL my students. When it is a good day, I want it to be fantastic. However, on those days that aren't so great, I want my kids to feel safe and comfortable as well.

Everything in our environment is different because we are all unique, and I plan to create a place that is inclusive, comfortable, and inspiring.

The supplies I am requesting are essential for a classroom with students on the Austism Spectrum. For instance, headphones are necessary since loud noises may hinder them from time to time in places like the cafeteria and/or an auditorium performance. A bean bag during times of distress is a better choice for calming a student down. Lastly, I like to give my students a break between their academic studies and mats would be ideal for stretching and doing exercises.
