This week’s student-focused blog celebrating Disability Awareness Month features Alex, a student in Cotting’s Capstone program, who has lots to share about herself. Alex says “At Cotting School I have learned many things beyond algebra and division” and she supported that statement with a long list of examples. Here’s what she had to say:
- Friendship is about trust. I have made many friends here and have learned how to be a good friend. I also try to make new students feel welcome.
- I am learning skills so I can live independently and go to college when I leave Cotting. For example, If I act maturely and am nice, people respond well.
- I like filing and doing office work, skills which I have practiced in my jobs off campus.
- I have learned to read the room I am walking into and become aware of my surroundings.
- I was awarded “Most Independent Skier” on last winter’s ski trip because I like to go fast.
- I laugh while everyone else screams during scary or creepy movies like “Sweeney Todd.”
- I am dressing as Bonnie from “Bonnie and Clyde” for the Halloween dance.
- I am FUN!
