My Students

I teach some amazing special education learners! This will be my 3rd year with most of my kiddos and I’m so excited to be back with them and a few new kiddos. I most often work with student with social, emotional, and behavioral needs, but also work with students with academic needs. I feel so lucky to work work with my amazing students!

My Project

Our district has made the decision the have our students in school 4 days a week this year. With the current recommendations it is safest for students not to share supplies. If I want to give my students the same experience I always try to, I need enough supplies for each individual student. The supplies students bring at the beginning of the year stay in their general education classrooms. As a special education teacher, each year I buy all the supplies for my students to use in my room, things like, pencils, markers, scissors, etc. This year I will need a lot more than I ever have before and would greatly appreciate any help to give my students the experience they deserve!
