My Students

I have students in grades kindergarten to 6th that are facing the challenge of overcoming learning disabilities. My students come from all different backgrounds, they are of many different ages, they each have their own unique home life, but they all have one thing in common.

Each of my students reminds me every day to never give up my dreams.

All of my students have learning disabilities, due to this disability, school and many simple life skills are extremely difficult to them. Together we work to find strategies and resources that can help them to be successful and feel more confident in the classroom and in everyday life.

It is imperative that I give my students the resources they need to feel confident in their skills.

My Project

My special education class will be running a campus coffee cart! On Mondays my students will collect order forms and money from teachers. On Tuesday they will calculate change due for each order.

Our goal is to give our students the opportunity to practice daily math and social skills in an environment that provokes pride and confidence!

On Thursday they will tally how many of each order we have and prepare the assembly line. On Friday we will run the assembly line and students will get the opportunity to practice daily living skills like preparing beverages, cleaning up, and organizing orders. Then they will take the coffee cart out and deliver the orders to each classroom while practicing their social skills!
