My Students

I teach the 3rd grade Special Education Autism Core Program at our school. We are a Title I School, meaning that more than three-quarters of the students in our school come from low‑income households. Besides autism, some of my students also have anxiety, ADHD and specific learning disabilities. However, despite their disabilities, they always come to school with a smile on their face.

My students' smiles bring joy to my life and they make my days more enjoyable.

They work hard and follow the Core Curriculum at the same pace as the general education students. This workload is sometimes difficult for them and it requires me to constantly think of ways to help them stay focused and engaged so that they can be successful in the classroom. My students love to learn and I always encourage them to try their best.

My Project

Recently, a previous DonorsChoose project allowed my students to receive a Microsoft Surface Go. They are very excited about all that they are learning to do on it.

I would like to make sure that we take very good care of our new device so that it lasts us for many years to come.

For that reason, I'd like to request a cover and a screen protector. The USB-c to USB adapter would allow us to connect our external drive to back up their work. Lastly, the Avery labels would allow us to print labels and important elements for our interactive notebooks.
