My Students

This is my first year teaching elementary school and resources are slim! My students will put a smile on your face!

One of the many things I love about my students is their eagerness to learn.

As a special education autism strand teacher, I am working with vastly different ability levels. It is important for me to meet my students at their level. Having the proper resources makes this doable. I work with children with a variety of disabilities, but one thing they share in common is their love of learning. Thank you for considering donating to my classroom.

My Project

I am looking to add sight word stories in my classroom. Sight words are words that cannot be sounded out and students learn these words by repeated exposure. My students will enjoy reading these stories and will have a better chance at learning how to read by learning stories that are entertaining and my students will love the colorful stories instead of the printed black and white stories that have been copied with the copy machine! Please help give my student the access to the materials they need to be successful.
