My Students

I teach students with a wide variety of disabilities that are moderate to intense. This year I taught 7th-12th graders. With their unique qualities they bring a ray of sunshine to all of us every day. I have never felt as needed and accepted as this year with this group of students. With their intense needs they are in need of a lot of outlets in order to digress behaviors that come up.

I teach 33 students with 3 other teachers and 8 Para Professionals.

The students come from low economic backgrounds, mostly with no father figure in the pictures. They are provided free breakfast and lunches. They are not immune to lives full of turmoil and strife and have seen more heartache than many of us. Yet they live on and gladly attend school daily. Most do not miss any days of school. They do not have the necessities that we have in our daily lives.

My Project

Cooking in our classroom weekly-for Living Skills, we have to buy a lot of paper and plastic products, as the students want to try what they have made. We are also in need of measuring cups and spoons that will hold up to our usage. We will use the plates and silverware to eat on and with.

In order to save funds and go green, we are opting to use actual silverware and plates.

We are opting for stainless steel as it will not rust and it is heavy duty and Corelle plates that do not break. We use these items weekly and it will help us go green while we are learning life skills of cooking.
