My Students

My high school students all need extra help to be successful in their classes. Some have learning disabilities, autism, difficulty focusing or emotional challenges.

Sitting through four 90 minute classes is hard for anyone; imagine how much harder it is for a student with ADHD, Autism or learning disabilities.

In 2018 Hurricane Florence hit our area impacting our school and many of our students. My students are resilient, strong and compassionate. They help and support each other. Despite all the challenges they face they continue to work hard, ask for help and strive to overcome their disabilities. I love watching them learn and grow.

My Project

Our High School Special Education team would love some resources to teach basic money management and math skills to our students.

Too many high school students graduate without basic money handling skills.

We would like to have some resources to help them learn and practice the skills they will need in the future. These materials will help our team give our students the opportunity to practice skills such as paying for items, making change and balancing budgets.

Many of our students will go on to jobs that will require these skills and they will also need them in their daily lives.

Thanks you for helping us prepare our students for the future.
