My Students

My students range from ages 13-19 years old. Most of my students come from difficult home lives, usually where the parents are separated. The students in my classroom are nearly a 50-50 split of ethnicity between Caucasian and African American. The basic student in my class has very low to no verbal skills. Therefor they have to be taught how to communicate whether that be through vocal behavior or training, signing, or through the use of a speaking device such as an iPad. Because of the severity of my students diagnoses, our school day consists of, vocal behavior shaping, communication skills and functional job related tasks.

What makes my students special is that every single one of them are unique and bring a different element to my classroom.

My Project

My students are currently working on functional and work related skills that they may be able to use once they are out of school. I believe that it is now time for them to take the next step in their learning. After a discussion with my internal coach, principal and consultants, we determined that we would like to put together a coffee cart for our students. With this cart, the students would practice the functional skills that come with making coffee (in a Keurig) and also increase their social skills by selling coffee to the rest of the teachers and staff at our school.

By doing this I am also hoping to increase some awareness for my students, and showcase just how amazing my kids are.
