My Students

I am a high school Special Education teacher. I am the lead teacher in the Life Skills classroom with 11 students. Along with academic skills, my students work on skills they can take with them after high school. These work and life skills include cooking, laundry, and shredding.

My students are always excited to learn new tasks and skills!

When a student masters a new skill, the others are there to cheer them on! Our classroom is our own little family.

My Project

Our students engage in school-based jobs each day. One of their favorite jobs is shredding papers, but the classroom shredder was very old and has recently stopped working. The item I am requesting is a new paper shredder for our students to use on a daily basis.

A new shredder would help our students continue their shredding jobs without the uncertainty of whether or not the shredder will work properly for them to complete their job.

By donating to our project, you are helping special needs students build skills to use after high school, when the need for these skills is the highest.
