My Students

I teach a life skills class at the high school level. I love my students because they are hard workers, they enjoy learning, and they are so much fun! I continue to be amazed on a daily basis watching them overcome their individual challanges to succeed academically, socially, and vocationally.

Our program currently has 22 special needs students ranging in age from 14-21.

Our students have disabilities such as: downs syndrome, various levels of autism, and many other mental and physical disabilities.

My Project

My students learn more when they are engaged. They love to be interactive and hands on. Our class does not have a set curriculum, which allows me to be more inventive with my lesson plans, however, we also have to come up with our own supplies, text books, worksheets, etc. Since Hurricane Harvey, I'm so excited to be able to provide some educational excitement in my students life. The apple TV, science experiments, and other learning kits will make learning fun! We have a wide range of student IEP's that need to be met academically, socially, and vocationally. The use of the dolly, utility wagon, and the folding platform will help our students transport the items they purchase at Sam's to stock the school concession stands. My students struggle with normal everyday life tasks that most people take for granted, therefore, they need the extra academic support that will be provided through the apple tv, hot dot talking pens, hands on experiments, flash cards, math games, student clock dials, and other varies academic focused items.
