My Students

I teach 9th-12th grade young adults with a variety of intellectual, physical, and sensory impairments in our high school's Life Skill's Program. My students are focusing their time in school on preparing for life after high school; that looks different for every student. We work with each student individually to help them communicate what their personal goals and visions for their futures are. My students are looking forward to being as independent as possible after high school.

In our classroom we focus on interviewing skills, job applications, cooking, cleaning, money, time, and functional writing skills.

Most of my students are looking forward to moving out of their parents' home, working, and being involved in their community when they finish school. are looking to continue their education in a college or vocational/trade training program.

My Project

All of these supplies will further support our students in gaining their independence. Our students are learning academic content, vocation skills and practical independence skills.

The cooking supplies (stove, oven, utensils) will be used for practicing meal preparation.

Our classroom is currently without a kitchen--The portable stove, oven and cooking supplies will help us be able to teach cooking lessons in our classroom.

The games and academic supplies will be used to further enrich the modified curriculum. Our students require varied methods of instruction in order to retain skills. Providing them with different ways to practice and show their knowledge is vital for their success.
