Celebrating Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month

Celebrate Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month

This project is a part of the Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month celebration because it supports a Latino teacher or a school where the majority of students are Latino.

My Students

The school I work in is a specialized district complex that serves students with special education needs coupled with high behaviors. Most of our students have autism, although we do have students that have other disabilities. Our student population is small due to the nature of our work. We are constantly working on building and developing important life skills for our students.

Our students have the ability to show their true skills and abilities with the proper supports and encouragement in place.

Our main approach with our students is to teach important life skills, while still exposing them to appropriate level academics. To do this, we rely on some technology but mainly manipulatives and books that our students can easily work with using their fine motor skills. This also requires us to get very creative and spend a lot of time prepping materials for our students.

Each of our students has amazing possibilities in front of them. My goal is to provide each student every opportunity I can so that they can live a fulfilling life as independently as possible.

My Project

A clean campus not only helps the school look good, it can also keep our students safe. Our custodian works tirelessly to help us keep our school clean. In order to keep our campus clean, we are in need of outdoor tools like a leaf blower, hedge trimmer, and a weeding tool. We also need to keep our school clear of pigeons. Many of our students are starting their transitional learning, which is more focused on life skills and other abilities that they'll be able to do once they graduate out of the school program. Helping keep our campus clean is just another life skill our students can learn.

Our students learn the best with hands on and physical activities.

With guided help, our students will learn to help with gardening and maintaining a clean and safe area and campus.
