    Welcome to room #410 at Belle Vernon Area High School!  Our goal is to work together to develop and reinforce skills that will help us to become ethical, confident and productive members of society.  We will accomplish our goal through teamwork, dedication and respect.  We will be working on the following:

    • Functional academics (math, language and social science)                                
    • Daily living skills (household maintenance, laundry skills, etc.)                                                  
    • Health and safety                       
    • Cooking & meal preparation skills including designing menus, locating recipes & grocery shopping
    • Money management skills including banking, budgeting & class rewards program
    • Personal hygiene & grooming
    • Partners programs for art, physical education, swimming and choir 
    • Social skills                                                          
    • Communication skills                    
    • Leisure & recreation
    • Pre-vocational skills 


    In addition, we will have many opportunities to learn through modeling & practical experiences through participation in school, district & community-based activities & field trips throughout the year.  These could include ...

    • Peer mentorship & buddies (Friends First club & Partner's programs)
    • Volunteer, apprenticeships & work-based learning experiences 
    • Opportunities for social & life experiences at restaurants, stores, bank, libraries & additional businesses within the community
    • Additional social & sport-related events that would include other Life Skills classes from within and outside of BVASD (S.T.A.R.S.)

    Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. And always remember ...
