My Students

Hi! I teach preschool special education in Allegheny County, right outside of Pittsburgh, PA. I’m a different teacher than you might be used to, as I travel around three school districts and push-in to preschools, daycares, and homes of students aged 3-5 that have IEPs. I have up to 40 students in three low-income school districts and I try to provide them with the most comprehensive services possible in their natural setting! My students have varying degrees of developmental delays and other disabilities, but are smart, curious, and so loving!

My Project

My speech therapist and I are not only providing special education services during this time, but fervently planning for the moment our students return after this quarantine.

The games are to work on cognitive and language skills to help prepare our students for success in Kindergarten and beyond.

The superhero capes, dragon toy set, and Mr. Potato Head will allow us to practice pretend play skills as well as social interactions. The boogie boards will allow us to create words, pictures, and activities on the go to make sure our students are being best served.

We plan to use the storage options to create a more clear, organized environment to make learning opportunities more accessible and streamlined. We are so excited to move forward past this horrible pandemic and create lasting learning memories!
