My Students

Moving on up in the world! This year I made the transition from elementary school to middle school. Unfortunately, my materials are for a younger grade level. Our class is a small group of bright kids! The students struggle with social skills. We are looking for materials to help them gain confidence and become more successful.

Help special education students with the tools to help them grow!

The materials you will be helping us to obtain will help students in their everyday classroom needs.

The students will truly appreciate the materials you will provide them on an every day basis. Be the role model these students strive to become.

My Project

Students will be able to attend classes with the proper materials. Laminating sheets are a teachers best friend. They provide re-usable materials that survive the student hand!

Bold and Bright understanding in sight!

Colored paper is another friend of the teacher. Writing with pens and pencils is a thing of the past. However, the students should continue these skills and why not use some erasable pens. Many of the items will assist students with executive functioning skills. Skills we use everyday are skills my students struggle with every second of the day.

Let our classroom shine with new and improved materials!
