Ms. Leverenz from Milwaukee WI is requesting a class trip through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Bus Tickets For Special Education

My students need these bus tickets to improve their transition and daily life skills in order to be successful after they leave high school.

My Students

I am a special education teacher in a self-contained classroom working with students diagnosed with Intellectual disability. My high school students have many different interests and talents; they come from many different cultural backgrounds and a wide range of social classes. The students I work with work on an alternate curriculum due to the severity of their disabilities, and all of my students remain in high school until they turn 21. A typical day in our classroom consists largely of working on simple daily living skills as well transition skills that come so easily to many of us.

My students face numerous challenges in their lives including hunger, safety, and unstable living situations.

For many of our students, coming to school is the only time they feel as though someone cares for them and have a feeling of safety.

My Project

Many of our student's families don't have cars and utilize public transportation daily. However, my students, for the most part, are unable to take the city bus on their own, due to their varying disabilities. In order to take the students to the various volunteer activities we have planned, we will use public transportation as part of the day's lesson.

Students will gain an invaluable experience with us by utilizing public transportation.

Taking the city bus to each location will give our students the crucial practice they require to continue building independence for daily life on their own that many of us may take for granted.
