My Students

Special Education contains some of the most inspiring students who work really hard becoming strong leaders. My lovely students are in a special education setting because they need additional help and support in their learning environment. This means that there are many things they require in their daily routine to help them regulate their behavior that other general education students do not need. As their teacher, I strive to provide them with all the tools they need to be successful. These students are so inspiring with how independent they can be in monitoring their social and emotional health when put in a setting with the right resources.

My Project

A weighted blanket is essential to a special education classroom. It provides compression to the students central nervous system that helps them de-escalate their behavior when it starts to get out of their control. This allows them to take control of their own behavior and become more independent which is a beautiful and amazing thing. As their teacher, it is my job to provide my students with everything they need to become successful. Unfortunately, I have a limited paycheck that does not allow me to provide the most essential materials for my students. With your help, I can provide my students with the keys to success!
