I teach twelve students with severe disabilities in a high school serving a community having a disproportionate number of low-income residents unable to provide socioeconomic advantages for their families. Our school serves students in grades 9-12 and boasts rigorous academics, dedicated teachers, and a supportive learning environment.
Despite their physical and other disabilities, my students are eager to do their best.
They want to learn all they can in order to be successful one day. All receive free lunch in the school cafeteria.
My students need a Presto Cool touch Griddle, one Grip-EZ Pizza Cutter, a T-fal Air-Bake Pizza Pan, a Pyrex Measuring Cup and a 8-piece Measuring Set for our weekly cooking class. Appropriate tools will help my students acquire needed cooking skills. The project encompasses the goal of teaching them the goal of teaching them how to cook at home for themselves and others.
Most of my special ed students severe disabilities have not had the opportunities to cook simple meals at home.
Teaching them cooking skills will equip them with crucial independent life skills. Moreover, I want to increase the likelihood that my students can function as self-sufficient and contributing members of society as they transition to adulthood.
