My Students

My students are energetic, eager to learn and inquistive! They love hands on projects that help them connect educational concepts with real world application. When they are moving, they are learning! My classroom is small, but our learning is vast!

Our school is UNIQUE!

As a school of choice, parents drive many miles to give their child educational opportunities that they may not experience otherwise. A functional curriculum in our classroom gives students the opportunity to reach their full potential in areas of cooking, housekeeping, community safety skills and pre-vocational skills. We focus on these areas in addition to our core curriculum subjects, with a focus on technology and science.

Each day, my students bring lots of joy to the classroom. They love working together and they celebrate each others success! I love to see them cheering for each other as they meet their goals and discover new things together. Each day is a new adventure!

My Project

Our classroom is in need of office supplies to help run our life skills and resource programs. We are asking for a laminator to help create new "centers" for our students in reading and math. The laminator will allow students hands-on opportunities for content based learning. A task light would also be a great addition to our classroom to help our students in which "less light is more." With special needs sometimes we have different lighting needs. These things will make learning easier and allow our students to work to their full potential. Each student in our class will be able to have access to the supplies to make our classroom more organized and functional.
