My Students

Dr. Temple Grandin wrote, "There needs to be a lot more emphasis on what a child can do instead of what he cannot do." Students with disabilities are more able than disabled. One must stop thinking in terms of limitations and start thinking in terms of possibilities. One must see the able and not the label.

Students in my class are like a jar of glitter because they all have sparkle.

Everyday is a new day and we take it one day at a time with our bright sparkle. Students in my class have disabilities that range from Autism to Specific Learning Disabilities to Speech Language Impairment and so on. We do not focus on the label but we look at the able. Sometimes we are happy, sad, quiet, loud, frustrated, not frustrated but we are always smart, amazing, beautiful, and unique. Oh and we always sparkle!

My Project

Students in my class do become frustrated at times. An array of desculating tools are taught and used in the classroom. Students have been given a plethora of tools to calm themselves down when necessary.

Students are excited to add yoga to their toolbox as a deescalating tool.

Students are learning that punching people in the face is not an option, but we can breath. Students are learning that one can self regulate our actions when upset. We have the ability to be calm, grounded, strong, centered, peaceful and safe. Most importantly we are worthy of all good. Having access to yoga mats will allow students to begin yoga sessions in the classroom to further build on previously learned strategies to calm minds and bodies. Students will be able to calm their minds, be present, and grow. Today is a good day to start yoga.
