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 t-shirts, sunglasses, combs, and socks for our school's upcoming talent show. The annual talent show is the most loved event in our entire school. Every spring students come up with acts that are so fun, creative and inspiring. Our special needs students feel so special during their time to shine. Family, friends, and staff cheer our students on.

Students work on following directions and social skills as they prepare for the big event.

The Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts of our school are going to combine this year to perform, "You're the One That I Want," from Grease. The requested supplies will be used to make costumes. We really appreciate your kindness and willingness to help us out.
