My Students

Remember reading that first book that helped you develop a love of reading? Do you remember those integrated art lessons during math or history class?

My students are from one of the poorest and most violent cities in the country.

Every day they strive to broaden their horizons and reach for the stars. For many, school is the only safe haven they know. I work to teach them that there is a bigger world out there than the one they see every day, that they matter, and that they will always have a safe place to explore the world around them in our classroom.

My Project

We just opened up a life skills program here at WW for our most needy students. Many of these kids have Cognitive Disabilities, Autism and Physical Disabilities that prevent them from being able to function independently within the greater community.

Our program intends to teach these kids the adaptive and functional skills to integrate into the larger community and to lead productive and fulfilling lives where they are contributing to society.

Our life skills program is brand new. We have established a community based instructional program where students work outside in the community developing adaptive skills so that they can function independently within the community. They learn how to take public transportation, budget their money, juniors and seniors go out to work twice a week and receive pay checks. The program is promotes inclusion regardless of the students’ disability.

Our goal is to open a room, which has already be designated, as a life skills room where our students with Autism and Intellectual Disabilities will run and operate a cafe for the staff. The long term goal is to prepare our kids for independent lives outside of the school. After we arm them with the adaptive and functional skills to participate as productive citizens within the community, we have several local agencies that help support our kids transition to adulthood by working with the students and their families to provide housing, and work as well as providing these students with job training opportunities. Thats why the drying rack, pots and pans, oven mitts, cutting boards, baking pan, mixing bowls, signs for decoration, napkins, and an organizer is important. It is needed for the food for our student run cafe.
