My Students

My students are some of the coolest students on the block. The amount of growth that takes place in my classroom daily is immeasurable. Every one of my students are dealt a different hand in life. Some are non-verbal, non-mobile and/or intellectually impaired.

This class teaches them the game of life and how to be an active member in the community!

My students have moderate to severe special education abilities. The abilities of my students range from cerebral palsy, blind, low-cognitive development, epilepsy, Down Syndrome, Autism, deaf and hard-of-hearing. Special education students are allowed to attend high school until the age of twenty-two. Once they turn twenty-two, they are sent on their own to either a group home, assisted living, or fully independent. Each student comes from a unique background; some are better than others. The class dynamics is a sight to see. The students genuinely enjoy learning about adult life and what they may encounter. They have learned how to cook simple breakfasts and lunches with verbal and physical prompts from classroom aides and myself. With assistance, they go out into the community and volunteer at various work sites in the community.

My Project

Our District based adult transition education class caters to individuals who are 18-22 years of age with special education needs. Our goal is to get a heat press so that the student uniforms adhere nicely to the shirts. Our student work is all teacher created and we run out of ink constant. The ink will support our printers and The students in the class need support in all areas of independent living: Functional, vocational, leisure recreation, and social interaction skills as well as community awareness and safety.

These materials will help them create yearly uniforms for their job sites, and printer ink to help support resume building and job search.

The iron-on vinyl and heat press will be used every six months when the students need to make their uniforms for their job sites.
