My Students

I teach at the first-ever STEM-certified elementary school in the state of Georgia. Our school is innovative, unique, and diverse. Our school is filled with all types of learners. Each of our students is an integrated part of the success in our school. My students are passionate, caring, spunky, and challenging. They teach me something new every day. They are positive and optimistic and they always smiling. They require a unique way to learn and they also require sensory integration throughout the day.

My Project

Social skills instruction is a key part of every school day in our classroom. Not only is it embedded in daily encounters, but it also must be taught descriptively. With these books focusing on many different topics, my students will be able to learn and grow! The center games included will also help my students learn while promoting social situations where they must work and play together. Collaboration and competition can be difficult for certain learners. This is why it is so important to create these types of situations and encounters. We look forward to putting our new instructional material into good use!
