My Students

I teach students in a rural community with cognitive and physical disabilities ranging from 14 to 22 years old. Students are at various levels socially, physically, behaviorally, and cognitively, but each student is eager to learn. They are learning life skills and skills needed to transition out of High School.

My students support each other and are always willing to lend a helping hand to someone in need.

They are excited to discover the world around them. By mastering functional life skills, they are growing to become more independent and productive members of society.

My Project

My students will use the Cricut machine and materials to create crafts for their school store. Students will use the Cricut machine and materials to design letters for craft projects they will make and sell in their store. Students will be able to use proceeds from the store for classroom supplies, class trips, cooking supplies and other projects.

The students working together to design, create and sell craft projects would teach the students communication, social, math, reading and vocational skills.

The skills taught will facilitate their independence. They would learn life skills to aide their transition out of High School.
