My Students

"The three things we crave most in life-love, happiness, and peace of mind- are always attained by giving them to someone else." Please consider the gift of giving by donating to my Life Skills Support class!

My students are in the 6th-8th grade Life Skills Support class at a high need, public school in Philadelphia.

They have intellectual disabilities and complex needs which require a specialized curriculum targeted to meet their individual academic goals. My student deserve a quality education and access to resources that will enhance their learning.

My Project

The goal of my class is to provide students with the skills necessary to live a productive, independent life when they leave the comfort of the school walls. I carefully selected materials that will meet the needs of a variety of learners.The resources on my wish list will make learning meaningful and fun for my students. The life skills development series, social skills picture book, learning center management kit, laminator, and other relevant supplies will help my students meet their academic and personal needs.
