My Students

The students I teach are high school students with disabilities including: intellectual, autism, physical and multiple disabilities. I focus on teaching functional academics, life skills and vocational skills that will help them to become as independent as possible before transitioning out of the public school system. We focus on key life skills such as problem solving, communication, and staying on tasks. Some students will live independently when they exit the NYC DOE. Most will require some support. My goal is to teach these students as much as possible to make them as independent as possible and to help them contribute to society in ways that are meaningful to them.

My Project

My students started in a school vocational training program for students with disabilities to learn real life, authentic office skills. This includes, but not limited to: printing, photocopying, laminating, scanning, school supply inventory, filing, and making deliveries. Based on the needs and wants of our students’ person centered plans, we selected students who expressed a desire to work in an office setting. This program also aligns with students’ IEP goals and will help our students reach mastery level in these goals. The money will be spent buying a laminator and a work station table so that we can transform our classroom into a student run office. We received funding for most our supplies; however we still need a work station table and a laminator.
