My Students

I currently am teaching life skills in a Title I special education school. Within my school, almost 90% of students live in poverty. While the school has initiatives that provide students with free breakfast and lunch, many students are unable to come to school with supplies and spend time in classrooms that are not fully equipped with necessary materials. Every student deserves a quality education, and my children are no exception.

My students are capable learners who amaze me by what they accomplish daily and throughout the school year.

My Project

All these supplies will help my students learn hands-on. My students have a range of mixed disabilities and are from kindergarten to fifth grade. Some students are nonverbal with a variety of intellectual, emotional, physical, and sensory impairments. My students will use hands-on materials to learn daily life skills. Such as safety skills, health, self-advocacy, independence, self-esteem, money management, and communication. Life skills teach my students how to manage everyday tasks to help them gain independence and move forward in life. By using these hands-on materials this will help my students who have unique challenges develop basic life skills, such as cooking, hygiene,
