My Students

My students are a great group of teenagers who are eager to learn about the subjects we teach. They are great at helping each other out, and I am inspired by seeing them overcome obstacles to their learning on a daily basis.

Despite having a variety of disabilities and coming from impoverished backgrounds, they work very hard, every day to improve their social and academic skills.

I want to work through DonorsChoose.org to improve the learning environment in my class and provide my students with more options on how to access the core subjects that I teach.

I work with three wonderful teaching assistants, and we have already created a great environment in which our kids feel welcome and safe. We just need some assistance to make it even better!

My Project

It's getting close to the end of the year and our students are in need of some more supplies to end this year and start the next school year! Our students use computers every day to complete work on their individualized reading and math goals. They need headphones to do this and many of our headphones are starting to show signs of wear and tear and need to be replaced. We also need white board markers for our students to use as they work out math problems either individually or as a group. Cold and flu season has been brutal this year so we are also requesting tissues and supplies to keep our room clean and germ free! My students also need more instructional materials on money because they are not yet independent in counting money and making change.
