My Students

Many of my students have faced challenges as they progressed through their education, which encompass learning disabilities, attending school that has Title I funding, experience of homelessness, and many other problematic factors. Aside from this, my students are still eager to learn, put a lot of effort into their work, and want to grow into independent and contributing individuals to their community.

My classes consists of awesome 9-12th grade students with disabilities who learn Applied English, Math, and Transition Skills.

Despite obstacles, our school has been recognized as a Blue Ribbon and California Distinguished School. My students are applying concepts learned in class to real life situations and participating in the community which is geared toward employment and independent living. Students are excited about learning and want to continue to advance their skills.

My Project

Providing my students with their own planner will allow them to keep track of their assignments, progress, and daily school events. Many of my students have difficulty keeping track of their schedule and what needs to be completed throughout the week. Not all students have access to a calendar phone app, so having a planner notebook can be useful in jotting down their own agenda, due dates, and upcoming activities.

This organization skill with a planner is vital and will continue to be used after high school.

Many of my students currently participate in sports, clubs, and work in the community so staying organized with a planner will make them more efficient. These students will eventually use planners in some capacity at the college level and during their everyday personal life.
