Humboldt High School Mini Grant Follow-Up!

by Diane Twait Nelsen

Two teachers from the  Humboldt High School special education department utilized the Transition Department SPDG mini grant process to take 4 students on a trip to Mosaic in Clarion Iowa.  This was a first time visit for teachers Cassie Smith and Jill Meyer as well as several of the students.  The students had spent time in class time before going on the visit talking about the options that this program could provide students and transition planning for their future.  The students and teachers learned that Mosaic offers many post secondary opportunities  (after high school) that can benefit students in a great way.  Adults who utilize this program after high school can continue working on their transition skills, working skills, and social skills.

The Humboldt High School teachers noted that “it was great for the students and teachers to have the opportunity together to see the different facilities that students could possibly work at.”  They also noted that it also “allowed students to see that there are multiple opportunities for them”.    They concluded that it was a great experience and that they hope to continue to find opportunities to have their students explore different post secondary options that are available to them.

Thanks Cassie Smith and Jill Meyer for sharing your follow up with us!
