My Students

This little light of mine, I'm going to let it shine... This is the song that comes to my mind when I think of my students this year. Each student has a heart of gold that radiates through each of their different personalities. I teach 6 special needs students, grades 9th-12th, with varying exceptionalities.

My students are beautifully unique and are very dear to my heart.

Along with teaching my students functional academics, I teach them daily living skills and life skills. We are also working on transitioning into becoming productive citizens in our community. My students work very hard to meet their goals. I've had the pleasure to work with this group in elementary school, and again in high school. It has been a joy to watch them grow and mature into young adults.

My Project

I have been researching vocational employment and community volunteer opportunities for my special needs students. We are in need of several janitorial items that we can begin to use for training.

Several of our local businesses have agreed to let us explore and develop our skills!

How exciting! For this to happen, we will need a little help from you. We are in need of several window squeegees and buckets to clean the windows of our local schools and businesses. We are also in need of trash grabbers and brooms to help keep our community and school campus free of litter. The funding of this project is one small step to helping each of my students transition into a productive citizen of our community.
