My Students

Summarizing a typical day in my classroom is not an easy task as no two days are alike! In general, my students participate in a variety of tasks, all aimed at increasing their independence as they become young adults. My goal for my students is that they grow into positive members of society.

My students are freshmen through seniors in a cluster program for students with moderate cognitive impairments.

Their abilities and disabilities all vary from readers to non-readers, from those who can solve word problems to those who are still working on learning their colors and numbers. Although they are different, they have one thing in common; their determination. My students work hard to exceed the world's expectations of them. My school is a large Chicago public high school. The students here are incredibly supportive of my students and welcome them as central members of the school community.

My Project

This project contains odds and ends to help us get through the school year! It has colored pencils, markers, scented room spray, a garbage can, and glue sticks. The students in our classroom are primarily visual learners; they utilize colored writing utensils throughout the school day and do many hands-on activities that require glue. These items will help facilitate these activities. Our classroom garbage can has definitely seen better days, so we are in need of a new one! Finally, we spend a lot of time in a relatively small space. Scented room spray is an essential item! Thank you for considering our project for your donation!
