What's In Your Frying Pan?

My students need four 12-inch frying pans to be utilize in our cooking curriculum.

I am a Special Education Teacher with a class called ACE. ACE stands for Academic Career/Consumer Eduction. I personally wrote the middle school (grades 6-7-8)curriculum for this multiple disabilities population. The goal of this program is to bring students back into their neighborhood schools and educate them with a curriculum that would expose them, regardless of their cognitive potential, to the skills needed to become productive members at home, school and in the community. Each student's needs and abilities are addressed on an individual basis. Many activities are hands-on, including our cooking curriculum.

This program was started six years ago. I inherited a classroom which was originally a home economics class and subsequently inherited all the "old" materials that were left behind. The school district did manage to replace all of the old appliances, however we were left with 20+ year-old utensils. Each year we try to replace a few items. However with limited funds, we have not been successful. The frying pans we have are bent, stained and the handles are loose.

Working on updating the equipment used in our cooking curriculum would be such a benefit for our students. In our Daily Living Skills area , students practice skills such as nutrition, menu planning, grocery shopping, meal preparation, dining mannerisms, kitchen cleanup and food storage. With updated equipment, the students can be exposed to new areas.

With your generous support, you will be able to make it possible for the students to work on successfully learning daily living skills (survival skills) that will help them during their life.
