My Students

As a special education teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district, my students are faced with many challenges both in and out of the classroom.

My students all have different academic and social goals they are working towards, but that does not stop them from being amazing kids.

They all want to be successful in everything they do whether it be reading, writing, math or just being less disruptive in class.

My classroom environment is nurturing one, with a small and very close group of kids that love to learn together

My Project

Emotional wellbeing is just as important for our students. Every day I see students struggle with anxiety, depression, trauma, and other mental health issues that keep our students out of their academic setting.

The fidget toys and stress balls will help the students regain focus to be able to get back into their academic setting.

Social games will give the students the opportunity to learn and practice the skills needed to cope with their feelings and emotions.

I hope these materials will help build the skills to support their emotional and behavior regulations. All students have the right to be in a safe environment and learn.
