My Students

We have a group of students that are present over 80% of the time although the group graduates less than 30% of the other demographics. There are multiple reasons why these students are present but not graduating. As a staff we are working towards ensuring all demographics are successful.

We are part of a smaller school that celebrates inclusion.

I teach emotional intelligence and restorative justice to all of our students. As my students make gains in my classroom, they begin to try small chunks of the day with their typically developing peers. My classroom is about building skills to get included. The work we do in this classroom is building relationships, attendance, following directions, and accessing entrepreneurial ship content in different ways. We celebrate little wins together each day.

My Project

Currently the 40 students are present at school but are not meeting graduation requirements. Our students need real world experience on running a barbershop and coffee shop. The students are interested in entrepreneurship and are planning on going into this field after college or high school. We have a schedule everyday of the week during lunch where there will be an event to keep our students on campus during lunch.

Mondays will be barbershop days where the Playstation will be used in the barbershop in a section where staff and student can watch DVDs or compete in video games.

We also have a section for checkers and Connect Four, a section to watch a television, and an area with business cards of our visitors who will come speak to our students about their professions. We are working to create the barbershop feel and we will also have a ribbon cutting

Most students come to CLA with a host of problems outside of our school so we are working to have all of our students feel welcomed and part of that is our community coffee shop and barbershop. Barbershop time will be spent building relationships and having real world conversations. Most of our students are low income, reduced lunch students who need real world experience as well as the important conversation to ensure they have to apply that knowledge to solve problems and be present mentally and physically.
