Celebrating Black History Month

This project is part of the Black History Month celebration because it supports a Black teacher or a school where the majority of the students are Black.

My Students

My amazing, energetic students are some of the most incredible people I know. Despite their cognitive, behavioral, and emotional disabilities, each student contributes unique strengths, talents, and insights to our classroom. Helping my students master challenging content, grow as individuals, and become positive members of society is an honor. Each student has diverse educational and emotional needs that are best met through hands-on learning experiences. Being a Title I school, most of my students come from impoverished homes and face additional challenges such as food insecurity, lack of basic supplies and lack of transportation, and reduced access to resources.

My students' emotional and behavioral disabilities, as well as intellectual disabilities, lead to additional challenges in the classroom that require creative interventions to improve focus and learning, especially during the pandemic that continues to alter their lives and routines in so many ways.

My students enthusiastically pursue any opportunity to enrich their learning through fun, hands-on activities, such as the garden, cooking, and vocational skills, but they sometimes struggle to focus during the activities. My goal is to guide my students as they aspire to reach their maximal personal, academic, and behavioral potential!

My Project

My students with a variety of disabilities are some of the most incredible people that I know. They love to help others and try so hard to succeed in life, despite the many challenges that they face every day.

Art is a great way for students who struggle with communication to relieve stress that they may be feeling during the pandemic, or due to daily life stressors.

Many of my students struggle to express themselves due to their autism, intellectual disabilities, and other mental health issues. The art supplies that you will be contributing towards will allow them to express themselves during mental health and social-emotional lessons, or any other time that they are stressed.
