My Students

This trip will be for multiple grades of Special Education students. These students come from different backgrounds and socio-economic classes. Some of these students have never been too far out of our small 2.2 square mile town. I remember a trip that we took not too long ago to Liberty State Park where our students thought that just riding the bus on the highway was their actual trip. They were amazed by seeing the skyscrapers across the river so I can only imagine what seeing them in person would be like.

Our students love to express themselves through art; whether it be drawing, painting, dancing, singing, or etc.

We just want the opportunity to give them an experience that they never had before. Some of our students wouldn't even know what Times Square was without Google. This trip will open our students’ eyes to see that they are allowed to dream and hope bigger than they ever imagined.

My Project

Students with disabilities deserve to have some of the same life experiences as their peers. This can become difficult for some parents raising children or sometimes multiple children in a small town without a lot of resources. This trip will allow them to have a genuine Broadway experience in NYC.

Seeing Disney's Aladdin on Broadway; as it's one of the most diverse casts, will allow our students to see themselves on stage.

Statics show students that have traveled outside of their region on trips are statically more likely to apply college and be open to more life experiences than those that never receive the opportunity to do so. Being a well-rounded member of society is very important to these individuals with special needs.
