My Students

Our school services students from ninth-twelfth grade. My students are learning at several different performance levels, within a self-contained classroom. The program allows the students to travel to different classes throughout their day. They struggle with moderate-cognitive impairments. Some students also struggle with physical, speech, vision, occupational, hearing, and behavioral impairments.

My students love to perform and make other's smile.

They like to collaborate with each other while learning. Please help bring the best tools to enhance the learning styles and engagement of our very special population!

My Project

We are so excited for new experiences that will be offered to our awesome students next school year in our special needs high school program. We are joining a basket ball league that includes the regular education students with our students. We will even be traveling to games against other schools.

I can hear the beats of the drums and cowbells now in the distance!

Yes, you guessed it! We would love to start a drum-line to cheer on our team at the games! We would have students play the snare drums and cowbells during the game to cheer, and at half-time they would march around! The students love sports and music. It warms my heart to visualize their excitement out on the court putting their heart and soul into basketball and the drum-line!

Thank you for considering our drum-line project! This one will warm your soul! Can't wait to share the pictures!
