My Students

I have an amazing group of kids! They are in a self-contained autism class that offers them the individualized attention they need. They have very diverse backgrounds and learn in unique ways. The students in my classroom are mostly non-verbal visual learners. They come from low socio-economic areas in the inner city of New York. My students may not have the same access to materials as other students, but that shouldn't stop them from getting the same education and exposure to the same material.

My Project

Winter is Coming... Well it already hit our classroom. We need some supplies to help contain the germs. We are in need of tissues, lysol wipes, baby wipes, paper towels and hand sanitizer. These products will help us fight the germs this winter, which seem to be winning the battle so far. When we are sick it is hard for us to be fully engaged in the classroom. They may seem like basic items, but they will make a big difference in our classroom. Thank you for partnering with our classroom and we hope together we can beat the GERMS!!
