Years of experience
Students this year
I am a HS Alternate Assessment teacher in Queens who has the honor of working with young adults who have a range of special needs. We engage in a wide range of hands on learning experiences and try to work on daily living skills. I love working in the classroom because I have developed connections with my students and have become another advocate helping students communicate their needs.
How will funding help my students?
The funds would go towards creating a welcoming, sensory friendly learning environment for my severely autistic students. I would use the funds to set up a life skills classroom that engages all six of my students in learning.
Number of students who will be impacted: 6
