My Students

I am an elementary special education teacher. I have the privilege of working with a group of students with very specific needs. They are special in many ways and make me feel lucky to be an educator.

Many of my students have specific learning disabilities and everyday at school can feel exhausting; despite these challenges, they come into my classroom smiling and ready to work.

Some of my students have sensory processing disorders, others are years behind in reading due to their learning disabilities, most of which come from financially unstable homes. The needs of my students range, but they are all wonderful kids who deserve a fair shot at being successful. With this donation, I will cater to the specific needs of my students and it will go on to serve many more in the future.

My Project

I have chosen fidget bands for my student's chairs because all of my special needs students struggle to stay seated. They need this extra stimulation to stay engaged while learning. I have also chosen to ask for a donation for an educational floor rug as we spend a lot of our time interacting and moving on the floor in our classroom.

The educational math keyboards I have requested will help these students practice the math skills that they will use for the rest of their lives.

Most of my students do not have access to many outside experiences; the more I can expose them to in the classroom, the more opportunity they have to learn. I look forward to experiencing these tools with them.
