My Students

I provide specialized instruction for grades K-3 in a self-contained Autism setting! We are a Title I, STEM school in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. All students receive free lunch and come from high poverty areas.

My students are vivacious, unique, and loving.

I admire them because of their resilience and joy. Due to the varying abilities of my students, differentiated instruction is essential in my classroom. Each child has individual academic and sensory needs. All of my students have difficulty advocating for their wants and needs and are predominantly nonverbal. Some are unable to toilet independently. They become overstimulated very easily; thus they have difficulty participating in the general education setting, school wide events, and even outdoor recess. My students are full of personality and I am so fortunate to be a part of their journey.

My Project

My students with Autism have difficulty learning in different areas in the room. I want them to be able to participate in floor time when we work on our activboard. This does not always go well when they have to sit on the floor. We often pull chairs onto the carpet but they are very uncomfortable and do not stay engaged in the lesson. We have been through many other forms of seating such as pillows and yoga balls and all have created more distractions for my little wiggle worms. I would love having these awesome chairs with a backrest, but still remain close to the floor for my students!
