My Students

I teach a special education moderate/severely handicapped Young Adult transition class for students 18-21 years old. Our class is a independent living, vocational, and community based program. The students learn independent living skills such as cooking, laundry, and money skills. They also learn vocational skills to be able to get supportive employment after completing the program. In addition it is community based and we go out into the community and learn skills to function as an adult (i.e. restaurant etiquette, community safety, and self-advocacy).

My students enjoy cooking and sports.

They love music and playing games.

My Project

Our classroom got broken into on Monday night. These items will be replacing all the items that were stolen. The dishes will be used weekly when they learn how to cook. The vacuum will help the students learn independent living skills. My students love playing games during P.E. time and our basketball was stolen. When I asked if they wanted another kind of ball they all said soccer and volleyball too.

By donating to our project you will help replace items that were stolen.

Our class is about independent living skills, vocational skills, and community based instruction.

Some of these items may seem random, but the people who broke into our room stole a bunch of random stuff.
