My Students

I have the honor and privilege of working with a wonderful group of students who are between the ages of 18 and 21. My students are hilarious, hardworking, and sweet. My students, who happen to have profound cognitive and physical disabilities, attend a separate school due to the severity of their needs. My students are within two to three years of graduating and are beginning the process of transitioning to the workforce!

Our students focus on learning from a functional curriculum.

Most of our students come from low-income families. Despite the challenges our students face, they are very energetic, enthusiastic, and kind-spirited kids.

My Project

My students need a thermometer, bulletin board decoration sets, scissors, folders, highlighters, candy, and calculators. The thermometer will be used to take student and staff temperatures in a safe, non-contact manner. The scissors, highlighters and bulletin board sets will be used to decorate our lobby and for prepping student learning materials. Calculators will be used to assist students with their math assignments.

The folders will be used to organize student work.

The individually wrapped candies will be rewards for students who go above and beyond. We really appreciate your help in obtaining these items!
