My Students

I am a 17 year veteran teacher, who got moved last year to a new school and classroom. I currently teach 8 students with multiple disabilities ranging from Autism to Down Syndrome. I am looking to make my students cubby area more adaptable to each of their disabilities. I work to create a fun, learning environment, where the kids love to come and learn. We work in content standards as well as everyday life skills needed to function in society.

I love to see my students succeed and it is my job as teacher, to lead them to that road of success.

I want to create an environment in which they feel it is theirs as they will be in my classroom from Kindergarten to 4th grade. I want every one of my students to learn responsibilty as well as to take care of their belongngs. This project will be the beginning of this process.

My Project

As a Special Education teacher, it is my job to create an environment for my students to learn in. As I moved into a new classroom last year, I currently have only some basic hooks on a wall for the students to hang up their belongings. I want to create a space that is their own for each students. With this requested locker, they will have cubbies and cubby buddies, which not only encourages friendship, but also a sense of responsibility. They will be able to start their day and end their day in their own private space of their cubbies. Please help me to create a successful learning environment for my students.
