My Students

My amazing students attend a program for students with disabilities. The program is designed to instruct students through the general education curriculum by using modifications and accommodations as well as instructing in coping skills, social skills, and positive interactions. We focus on academics as well as behavioral and emotional needs within our classroom.

My students are creative thinkers and problem solvers!

They don't want to let the world they live in hold them back and with a non-traditional classroom it is something that we work on every day.

My Project

Mindfulness, walking, and quality family time are all aspects of a well rounded social and emotional education. In the current pandemic times, parents are more involved with our students learning than ever. We have created a project to allow for students both virtual and in person to work on their social/emotional goals both at home with their families and in school with school staff. Students and families will be given pedometers to count their steps for a mindfulness walking challenge that will help motivate the students to not only work on their physical health but to work on their mental health, social/emotional health, and relationships with family, peers, and school staff.

Students will complete a 100 day walking challenge, each day students will be responsible for monitoring their steps and recording them in an easy to use chart.

This will then be evaluated weekly to show progress and monthly for students and their families to earn mindfulness prizes that will strengthen the bonds between the students and their families as well as between the families and the staff.

Students and their families will take mindfulness walks that will allow for mindfulness scavenger hunts, acts of kindness to be shared, and time for discussions of what they are learning, what interests they have, how they are handling life in a pandemic, and any other topics they wish to work on. These discussion will happen at home but students are able to share them during group. In person students will be able to complete these during school hours as well.

Social and emotional learning is something that is extremely important during a normal school year; however, it is of the utmost importance during and after the trauma of a pandemic. Students will work on their resiliency coping skills through their steps.
