My Students

My school provides services to students and individuals (age 2 through age 21) with severe cognitive and physical impairments. This school services individuals with severe disabilities within the district and other local districts who exhibit a need for highly specialized, individualized educational support.

My students work so hard, despite the many challenges they face because of disabilities, disrupted home lives, being homeless or in danger of homelessness, and living in poverty.

Students face additional challenges and special needs including speech and language disorders, ADHD/ADD, physical impairments, cognitive impairments, and health issues like seizure disorders. I have many students in my room who are considered medically fragile and require a 1:1 nurse to be with them all day. In our classroom, we embrace our uniqueness and our multicultural differences! We celebrate every success, no matter how small. I want every child to feel loved, be comfortable in the classroom, and enjoy school and learning.

Our classroom is truly their home away from home. For some students, my classroom is more welcoming and comforting than their home. In our classroom,​ we will be a family. Everyone will work to do their best and to be their best every day.

My Project

Our kids work so hard every day to accomplish the simplest of tasks! When students try their best and complete their work, they earn eagle dollars that can be spent at our eagle store or to buy opportunities to engage in fun events and activities. Students earn, count, and save their money to develop money and financial literacy skills.

I am seeking a variety of tools to create sensory bins for a fun sensory opportunity for students to engage in!

Blue water beads and plastic boats will create a water themed sensory bin. Black water beads, trucks, and inflatable signs will be perfect to fill a large plastic pool and allow students to engage in. White cotton balls and toy airplanes will be the perfect sky themed sensory bin. Students will use their hard earned dollars to pay to participate in this amazingly fun sensory event!
