My Students

I am blessed to teach an amazing group of moderate/severe special education high school students. Our school is a Title I school serving a diverse population. The students I work with are determined and strive to persevere through social, emotional, and academic challenges.

My Community-Based Instruction (CBI) class has worked with peers on the yearbook staff, attended school activities, and volunteered in the community.

They excel with movement and hands-on experiences. I am blessed to be their teacher, and I strive to encourage students beyond their greatest expectations.

My Project

This is a once in a life opportunity for my students to begin their classroom business. They will be in charge of everything, from the proposal, to the business plan, marketing plan, sale prices and the creation of the merchandise. The goal is for the students to design school spirit gear. We will sell the items to teachers, students, staff and parents.

Students will learn how to run and maintain a business.

Additionally, they will be learning about finance and budgeting. The money earned will pay for classroom projects, field trips and snacks. Most importantly, the money will be managed by the students. Let's make this happen!
