My Students

I teach at a high school in a small rural district. Our high school specializes in teaching students with special needs. Our building is small enough that everyone knows everyone. These students do not have much of a chance to explore the world past the edges of our county. Many of the students come from single parent homes and are not provided with opportunities to learn outside of school. My mission is to provide them with exciting, fun activities and learning in school.

My students are excited about learning, creating, and challenging their minds.

This is where they learn about teamwork, determination, and learning new strategies. They can use these skills in school and outside of school. I want to continue the opportunity to develop their skills during our day together no matter what subject we are learning!

My Project

This project will help prepare my students prepare for life outside of school. My students struggle with careers, finance and other daily tasks. These resources will be used to promote a fun learning environment that develops skills needed to become a productive citizen.

The group of budgeting games allow for a fun activity with the fringe benefit of learning about different finances and enjoying interactions with peers.

The cooking instruction book also has several purposes. It will give the students a chance to practice reading, follow directions and have fun preparing food that we will get to enjoy!

I am always looking for activities to help my students learn valuable information that they can use in all aspects of their life.
