My Students

I teach a Special Education Functional Living Skills Class from 1st grade to 5th grade. It is a self contained glass so I teach every subject! I have a very diverse group of students. Over 90% of the students at my school are considered to have low socioeconomic status.

I have students with physical, intellectual and other disabilities in my class.

My students have many challenges daily. My students have a love of learning and come to school with smiles on their faces every day. They come excited to learn new things.

My life is so much enriched by working with the group of students I work with! I want to be able to provide my students with the best educational experiences possible. Even the smallest things excite my students.

My Project

Financial Literacy is an important concept that all students need to learn. With my students being special needs students it is even more important that they learn about it. Some of my students may end up working in a grocery store or somewhere else where they have to learn to use a cash register. They will need to learn to count so they can add money. My students may also work somewhere where they need to count things. They will also need to learn about wants and needs.

Financial Literacy is a skill I want my students to learn so they can have some independence when they become an adult!

The Let's Pretend Restaurant Writing Box will coordinate well with the Cash Register. The Exploring Economy Hands-On Activities box will give my students the practice they need with learning about needs and wants, consumers and produces and other financial concepts. The Unlock It! Number Match, Number Rockets, and Numbers & Counting Folder Game Library will help my younger students learn to count which they need to learn. These resources are very hands on which is how my students learn best. Please consider giving to this project!
