My Students

My students have special needs. Their disabilities and needs are unique to each child. I have the wonderful opportunity to teach students with Autism, ADHD, Anxiety Disorders, Learning Disabilities, and more. Despite their many challenges, my students are very excited to learn new things every day.

I teach at a Title I school in Utah where a high percentage of our students receive free or reduced-price breakfast and lunch.

Many of my students receive backpack food on the weekends and our school also runs a food pantry for our families. Despite hardships in their lives, my students are eager to learn and do their best. They want to be in school and to be successful.

My Project

Thank you for your consideration for this project. As you are well aware, students are living in a time of high stress and anxiety. COVID-19 has rocked their worlds and given them a lot of instability in their lives as well as having disabilities.

These stress reducing flexible seating and anxiety reducing fidgets will help the students to be more comfortable at school and have a place to destress and relax for a bit.

Once we can get the anxiety and stress under control and teach them strategies these students will have the opportunity to thrive and be successful in school and life.
