My Students

My students are from Staten Island, New York. They will have the opportunity to be included in a yoga program that promotes health and wellness for the mind and body. I am a 6th grade NEST Special Education teacher from a title one school, that serves families from diverse socioeconomic communities. Our program includes students with Autism and other learning disabilities. This program provides support to help highly functioning autistic students participate within a general education setting. As the special education teacher I am responsible for providing social and academic support to help them succeed in school and their daily lives. I have been a fitness instructor and a yoga teacher for the past 7 years outside of my teaching career. I'd like to share this passion of mine and the knowledge that I have gained to help my students succeed.

I believe that the mind body connection that is developed when practicing yoga will help my students develop the coping skills needed to socially and emotionally participate and experience everything that school has to offer.

My Project

Autism is a disability that affects communication skills and the ability to form relationships. This class will help my students ease their anxiety, calm their minds, reboot their brains, and stretch their bodies. These yoga materials such as the yoga mats, wipes, deck of yoga cards, markers, diffuser, and positive affirmation posters will be used daily to support yoga and meditation practices within my classroom.

All children, regardless of their disability, should have the equal opportunity to be included in every aspect of a school community.

This program gives children from all cultures and income levels an opportunity to learn and thrive. Yoga, mindfulness, meditation, and movement are essential for everyone!
