My Students

I teach at a vibrant community school located in the heart of Minnesota. My classroom is a resource special education classroom that supports students with varying abilities and exceptionalities. We adapt the general education curriculum to meet the diverse needs of the students and to increase their opportunities to maintain, generalize, and transfer both academic and social skills to other environments.

My students are kind, thoughtful, and empathetic leaders who are building academic skills and social skills that will help them become independent learners and thinkers through their experiences, inquiry, and action.

The students in my classroom need a structured environment with a small number of students and many direct teaching opportunities. The students in my classroom have varying levels of needs and are able to participate in a general education classroom with a larger group of students with appropriate supports and modifications.

The school is located in an urban setting and serves many children who qualify for free or reduced-rate lunch and experience homelessness. The district has limited funding and special education programs rarely receive the materials they need. Often we need to create or purchase materials on our own in order to meet our students' needs.

My Project

Uniforms will allow our Spirit Squad the opportunity to showcase the gross motor skills they have been developing and mastering. Uniforms will continue to enhance our Spirit Squad identity, increase school community, and support relationships in and around our school. Making sure students have access to uniforms is an essential component in capturing their interest, increase participation in our school youth programs, and motivating them. I have noticed amazing growth within my students when discussing the use of uniforms with our pom poms, school song, and previously learned cheers.

By donating to our project, you will not only help to improve and increase student confidence and gross motor skills, you will ultimately help to increase their academic achievement.

The uniforms I have selected are high quality and will be a long term investment in our Spirit Squad's identity within our school and community.
