My students are 18-22 years old. They are enrolled in the Adult Transition Program at GHS. Our school is a high-poverty school in south Santa Clara County.
My students are motivated to learn skills that will help them become better citizens within their communities.
They are developing skills that will help them achieve independence while making positive life choices. Most learning is done within the community. Students in my program are motivated for transition into college or the workforce...sometimes both!
My students need a dishwasher. The purpose of my program is to help students transition to their adult lives after high school. My class focuses on several sectors including: vocational, self-help, mobility, leisure, and independent living skills.
I try and simulate real-life situations whenever possible.
One example is our classroom kitchen. My students engage in cooking and cleaning activities daily. We do not use disposable cups, silverware, or plates. Sometimes the dishes can really pile up!
My students would benefit from learning to use a dishwasher. This skill will definitely be beneficial to them in the future when they transition to an independent or group living environment.
