My Students

I teach a group of adult intern students with intellectual, physical, and autistic impairments. My class has graduated high school and now need jobs. Each day, we will meet in person to expand our social skills. Most of all, it is a time to work on employable skills, community living, and adult transition needs. Without the essential elements of our class, we will not be ready for the future.

Competitive Employment is our goal!

We work hard and be nice! This Is our class mission statement.

My Project

All of the adults in out training program need meaningful work experience and confidence. Many times we are having to turn down competitive employment chances due to not knowing how to operate a cash register .

With this Sharp register we will practice our skills daily.

Then we will place this strength into our resume and confidently inform companies we are ready for the job. Young adults need access to technology that prepares them for the working world . With this we will become well prepared , and productive .
