My Students

I teach 18 22-year-old young adults with a variety of intellectual, physical, and sensory impairments in our high school's Transition Program. My students are focusing their time in school on preparing for life after high school; that looks different for every student. We work with each student individually to help them communicate their personal goals and visions for their futures.

My students are looking forward to being as independent as possible after high school.

All of my students participate in internships and jobs around our school building and in the community as part of their education. We also practice interviewing skills, job applications, cooking, cleaning, money, time, and functional writing skills.

Most of my students are looking forward to moving out of their parents' home, working, and being involved in their community when they finish school. Others are looking to continue their education in a college or vocational/trade training program.

My Project

My students are working on basic skills that they need to function independently as adults after high school, at home, at work, and in the community. Currently, many of them struggle to count money. This makes it difficult for them to make a simple purchase, as well as to pursue their dreams of working in retail settings.

These coin calculators and money skills games will help my students improve their money skills so that they can feel successful and independent at work and in the community.

My students would greatly appreciate some new materials to help them learn more money skills that will help them in real life.
