Price comparison shopping

Our students have requested a television for the classroom. As part of a life lesson, students went out to three local businesses and found prices on televisions. Green is our pick for the best deal!

Work Attire: Part of the "Getting Hired" lesson

video
Transition students will be learning about the various stages of employment, starting with "the job hunt" and ending with the creation of resumes, which they can keep in their Transition Portfolios. The video above discusses what to wear and what not to wear when applying or interviewing for a job. It also discusses fashion and school attire.

My new blog!

Welcome parents, administrators, friends and community members,


    I started this blog to showcase all of the neat things we are doing at school. If you aren't familiar with what I'm doing this year, my first assignment as a classroom teacher, is within the Special Education department, in an awesome program called "Transition."
   The purpose of this program is to transition special needs adult students between public school and the community. We work closely with our local MHMR and each one of my kiddos has a job that they work at every afternoon.
     I'm going to post a photo of my crew here because they really are such a vital part of this program and I feel so fortunate to have them. Thank you Renee and Cathy!!
