My Students

I am a Special Education teacher, and my students are my superstars! I have been an educator for 18 years, and teaching special education for 9 of those years. Special Education students have a special place in my heart, and being able to advocate for these often "voiceless" students is my passion. My students thrive in a safe, calm, structured classroom, and I want to provide them with a special space full of sensory gadgets and flexible seating choices. We are an inner-city school with several families considered low socio-economic so it is imperative we provide a safe, positive learning environment for all our kiddos. Please consider donating to my superstars and our safe place!

My Project

My special education superstars need your help! My students deserve to have a classroom tailored just for them with plenty of places to relax from the overstimulating school building. With our request of light filters, fun pens, and sensory objects, my superstars will look forward to learning in a calm, built for success environment! Many times special education classrooms in inner-city public schools get overlooked by the state and local budgets, so we are excited to be a part of DonorsChoose.org to help supply our classroom. Thank you for supporting our special education superstars and their quest for a successful school year!
