My Students

Every student in my school receives free breakfast and lunch. We are located in a high needs area of Chicago.

My classroom currently serves students with the highest needs in regards to cognitive impairment, behavior, adaptive or functional skills, and life skills.

We tailor our classroom to meet each student’s individual needs and goals. We ensure that all of our students have an opportunity to learn and grow to their individual fullest potential. Our ultimate goal is for our students to be integrated members of their community.

My Project

Our electric burner and griddle have seen their better days. We are down to a single burner on a double burner that constantly smokes when we use it. Our students enjoy cooking on Friday as part of our life skills and functional curriculum. Our students have cooked pasta, pancakes, bacon, grilled cheese, chorizo and eggs, macaroni and cheese, carne asada, tacos, rice, Mexican hot chocolate, spaghetti and meatballs, sausage, potatoes, mini pizza's etc. We use cooking with the burner and griddle as an opportunity to increase our students independence while being able to cook meals that they would have in their every day lives. Thank you!
