My Students

My students are some of the happiest, positive people you will ever meet. They are young adults from Chicago who take the bus from all over the city to come to my school. They each have disabilities that qualify them for inclusion in my low incidence disability classroom. Low incidence disabilities are ones that are rare and happen infrequently, such as Autism or Down Syndrome.

It is true that their uniqueness is their strength.

One characteristic my students share is that they each develop their gifts to really impressive levels as they learn to overcome their disabilities. They inspire me every day and I hope you will consider supporting the great work we do together in my classroom.

My Project

Each year my students invite hundreds of people from their school and community to see them perform. The performance includes song, dance, poetry, and information on how to be an ally to students with disabilities in their community.

The speakers and microphones will help the students who sit in wheel chairs speak and be heard.

The teleprompter and screen mount will help students with speaking and movement impairments read their prepared speeches live. These materials will make a lot of kids smile, and make our performance even better! Thanks so much!
