My Students

My students are some of the most fun and curious kids in Kentucky. They love life and are happy most of the time. They can always find a way to make us smile or laugh. My classroom consists of 10 unique personalities and learning curves in a self-contained setting. Each one of them learns and expresses themselves differently. It makes each day, a new day.

One of the things we complete in our classroom is life and daily skills.

We cook, clean and do laundry. We cook for each other, our staff and families. We also have a coffee cart for our students to practice money and social skills within our school environment.

We like to experience all that our community offers, but we need to raise the funds to do that. One of the ways we do that is our coffee cart and we make homemade cookies for holidays to sell to our staff.

My Project

Currently, our students have started attending our related arts classes; music, art, science and P.E. However, they often are bored or need modifications to the assignments to meet their immediate needs. These resources will help us bring enjoyment and engagement to our classes.

My students love getting out of the classroom and enjoying things just like their friends.

These resources will give them the opportunity to learn just like any other middle school student. This will enhance their curriculum and opportunities given. Each day we will be able to participate and share with our friends our love of the arts. The items included are things we can use within our music, art, and P.E. classes.
