My Students

My students are all Autistic and need a lot of love and care to be successful in their academics. Like everyone else, these kids strive to do their best in their learning but often times fall behind. My wish is to be able to fill the gap and create independent and confident young learners.

Special education classes don’t receive supplies like most teachers.

Many students in my classroom come in with little supplies and resources. With your help, these kids can have the materials they need to grow. Their minds will flourish!

My Project

School supplies are an essential in every classroom. Being in special education, my students spend their time divided amongst multiple classrooms. The little supplies they may bring get divided among these many classrooms leaving us educators with little to work with to help them. These materials will help me give my students everything they need to be successful in their academics. We need the essentials such as paper, pencils, pens, markers, and more. Most of our community doesn’t have the ability to provide what they wish they could. Help me give these kids a classroom where they don’t have to worry about lacking in anything.

By donating to our project, you will not only help to improve and increase student self-esteem, you will ultimately help to increase their academic achievement.

These beautiful children need supplies to have a successful year.
