My Project

My students come from all backgrounds, they are in 9-12th grade. They all have special needs and need to learn how to live and be productive in the world. My program is helping them to learn how businesses work and give them some on the job experience. I run the class like a job, with and employee wall and check in and out. We are learning about plants and how to make them and sell them. We will be printing flyers and learning how to advertise. We will also learn that if you spend too much money you won’t have enough to keep a business running. My students are in need of some supplies and would be so excited to get things to help with their projects.
