My Students

I work at a year-round special education school, serving emotionally disturbed, learning disabled, and other special education classified students. Our students come from low socioeconomic backgrounds in New York City. Over 95% of the student body is eligible for free lunch, and more than 90% receive public assistance.

My students have exceptional abilities, and with the proper accommodations and modifications, they truly thrive in our school setting.

These kids are afforded smaller classroom ratios, personalized attention, and a myriad of specially certified providers that assist in their overall development.

My Project

My students would love to see "Girl From the North Country," a new Broadway production with a story about heartbreak, family, and love. The setting is a time-weathered guesthouse in the year 1934 in the heartland of America, and the backdrop is the music of Bob Dylan. The story follows various people as they pass in and out of each other’s lives, and their stories awake with passion, fury, and extraordinary beauty.

Taking my pupils on a field trip gives them a chance to work on displaying appropriate behavior in public, a particular challenge for my special education population.

I will also be able to teach them about theater etiquette, a skill that is new to them.

Most students at our school cannot afford field trips without assistance. They live in group homes, shelters, low-income housing, and foster homes, so it's impossible to do this on their own. Thanks for viewing our proposal and considering a donation for our Broadway trip. We appreciate all the support we can get!
