My Students

As a new special education teacher, my goal is to make my classroom feel like home to my students. I want them to come to school every day feeling like they belong and are a part of a family. My classroom will be a community of learners that work together to accomplish their goals and dreams. I want my classroom environment to feel bright, energetic, encouraging, and safe.

My students are high school age and have autism.

They come from many different school districts around the Metro-Detroit area. A large amount of my students receive free breakfast and lunch through Title I support. Despite their hardships in life, my students are eager to learn and grow as individuals. They are excited about learning and accomplishing their goals. I am honored that I get to help my students reach their full potential.

My Project

My high school students with autism are in need of materials to create a reading corner in our classroom! Reading is such a vital part of my students' education. I would like to provide them with a safe space for reading independently, with a peer, or with a staff member. My classroom has the perfect corner to transform into a reading sanctuary.

My students with ASD are in need of a Big Joe bean bag chair and chapter books to create a reading corner!

My students may also use this as a calming space if they need a sensory break. The calming ball will also be available in this corner. Please help me provide my students with an area that promotes imagination and literacy!
