My Students

My students are part of a blended classroom where there is a mixture of diverse learners with a wide range of abilities and students who come from the neighborhood which is predominantly Mexican-American. We are building the understanding in students that all are welcome in our special needs inclusive classroom.

My classroom is a little lab to practice life skills, make mistakes, and fall in love with learning.

My goal is for my students to understand that learning happens in the world around them, and the best way to teach that is to bring the world to the classroom.

My Project

Its fall time! The days grow shorter. The leaves begin their descent. Our children forget, lose or don't own mittens. Fingers freeze and children cry. Only one of these natural occurrences can we help avoid.

Help keep our students warm through fall and winter by providing them with mittens whenever we go out to recess.

We will give the mittens to students who regularly do not come to school with any. We will loan mittens to friends who just forgot. The hats will work similarly, as loaners or to give away.

We are also requesting toddler underwear. We have extra clothes to give students if needed, but we have no underwear in our kit. Accidents happen, we just want to be prepared!
