Welcome! I am a teacher in a Life Skills Specialized Support Classroom in Houston, Texas. The school that I work at is very unique in its diversity, both culturally and socioeconomically. Over 30 nationalities are represented at my school. The school is also classified as a Title I school and half of the school receives free or reduced-price lunch.
The students in my classroom range from kindergarten to fifth grade.
My students have moderate to profound disabilities including intellectual disability, autism, speech impairment, other health impairment, etc. All of my students are inquisitive, curious, and hard working. I could not be more proud of the group of students I get to teach! My goal is to provide my students with all of the materials they need to reach their highest potential. Please help me, help them. Thank you!
In our classroom, resources need to be differentiated to meet the needs of our students ranging from Kindergarten - 5th grade. From errorless work to grade level work, we do it all! Because of the wide range of abilities, many resources are teacher made and prepped using hundreds of pieces of cardstock and laminating sheets. These supplies are staples in my classroom.
It is also important that we meet the sensory needs of our students.
By providing them with new (clean!) kinetic sand and playdoh, they will have the opportunity to get their sensory needs met throughout the day.
The glue sticks, shipping tape, and scissors are used daily in the classroom in all academic areas. The bulletin board paper will help create a warm and welcoming environment in the classroom to start the year off right.
