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.

“Some see disabilities, but special education teachers see possibilities.””

What will the funds be used for

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.
