My Students

I am one of three teachers who run an 18-21 year old job transition program for students with disabilities. A PPT team decides if the student is appropriate for the program. There are 32 students in the class, with 3 teachers and 8 paraprofessionals. Some of the students have 2:1 paraprofessional support while others have general support.

Our job is to get the students ready for work out in the community.

Some students are ready to go out into the workforce right away, others have more involved disabilities and need more support. One thing we have noticed while traveling with our students out in the community is they have very little physical stamina. The program is in an inner-city school and while walking to the bus stop, many students struggle to walk just a few feet! While students are working at a job, whether it be volunteer or paid, within a short amount of time, they have to rest. This is why stamina is something we feel we have to work on.

My Project

We are teaching the young adults in our program about living healthy lifestyles that includes exercising on a regular basis. The pedometers will help the young adults to keep track of their daily fitness activities, as well as increase their stamina throughout their day. These students cannot afford gym memberships and the pedometers are a way for them to keep track of their daily fitness activities which would be equivalent to attending a gym regularly.

The pedometers will help increase the young adults stamina and awareness of maintaining a healthy lifestyle that includes exercising on a regular basis.

We believe that the pedometers will ensure continued awareness of the importance of daily fitness to maintain a long and healthy life.
