This week we talked about being happy and having a positive attitude. We wrote nice things about our co-workers on papers taped to our backs. You are cool, you are my friend, you are amazing, you are a lot of fun, you are a good reader are some of the comments. Having a PMA helps you do your best and helps you get along with your team at work or in class.
Workability week 6
We made a strawberry shake for the first time this week! Strawberries, milk, and ice cream were the ingredients. Team work is important when we work in the Coffee Cafe. Melissa did the dishes, Evan made the drinks, Bella put out the cart, helped with drinks and made the announced we were open on the intercom. Mary worked in customer service and ran the square and tablet for the payments. We made $22.00 dollars this week. It was a lot of work and one person had feet that hurt. We learned to wear comfortable shoes so standing isn't so hard. Two customers said the order incorrect. The customer is always right so we fixed it for them. It was a good day!
On Monday Team Orange went to the Pima County Superintendents Office . We put robot parts into STEMazing bags for teachers. Teamwork makes the dream work!
Team Orange is on day eight of our orientation. So far we have learned about our strengths and weaknesses, being determined, goals, job skills, and being independent.

Yesterday we went to Farmer's Market. We sold tiles and popcorn. The weather was gray. There were a lot of people there. Not all of them wanted what we had. We did this from 9:30 to 12:00. Some people tasted our popcorn and liked it. Others liked our tiles and bought them. There was food at Farmer's Market. We all left at 12:00.
After i left work ability i went to college for beauty school I only lasted 2 months because I already knew every thing so I decided to open my own business called Dare To Be Beautiful! and it was a really cool business but I wanted more in life. One day I came to Starbucks and I accidentally feel and luckily a man caught me his name was Kane Brown and we looked at each other for like 10 minutes after that i said thank you and went back to business and never saw him for 3 months and then he walked into my store and asked for a haircut. He loved it and he came back and he asked me out because he liked how i did his hair and he liked talking to me all the time and i said yes. About 5 years passed I became his girlfriend. And after dating for 3 years he took me to Disneyland for Christmas and he asked me to marry him and i said yes crying my eyes out. Our wedding happened 6 months after we got engaged and 4 years later we had 6 kids 3 girls named Alicia Belle and Arianna and 3 boys named Aiden Jayden and Bille . Belle was the oldest she was 3 Alicia and Belle were twins they are 2 and Aiden and Jayden and Bille are triplets and they are 7 months old. grew up and were really smart kids. Alicia wanted to be a teacher so she went to school to be a teacher. Belle wanted to be a princess in Disney land and went to college to get her degree and Arianna wanted to be a singer like her daddy so she took singing lessons and she became a star with help of her daddy. Aiden wanted to be a lawyer and he was a really good one he helped a lot of people. Jayden got into singing and dancing he took lessons for 3 years and he was very successful and Bille he wanted to play football with The Patriots his favorite team and they got older they now have their own family me and Kane are now proud grand parents of 6 grand kids. My kids made me a proud mom and I was so happy I got to grow old with my husband the love of my life and our journey we'll still go on in the after life. I love my family.
After I finished WorkAbility I decided to be a farmer. It took a lot of years to become one. I married a woman, but we had no children. We loved each other very much. Then one day a terrible thing happened. My wife died of cancer. The police came and got her. They felt sorry for me. After a few years, though, I remarried and we had two kids.The kids were hard workers. They fed the horses and milked the cows every day. We would talk about this and that. We always had lively conversations around the dinner table. We sang songs and went out to look at the moon and stars. We played games and listened to music. We had enough money to buy things. The house was a good size for all of us. We got along great. It was a wonderful life.
I have been learning about entreprenuership this week. We are making mosaic stepping stones. These will be sold at the farmer`s market on May 19 . We will be doing the end of the year presentation. During the presentation we will be speaking in front of our parents and teams. for the presentation we wrote out what we learned and what we liked. I liked making coffee , making artwork, and doing projects. I learned how to do a resume, I learned how to blog and I learned a lot on outings. I will be coming back for the summer class. I am excited to come back for the summer to learned new skill. I enjoyed making the tile and this week.
Next Sunday we are going to Farmer's Market. It will be from 9:30 to 12:30. We will be selling hand-made tiles. This event will be taking place in Rillito Park. There will be food there. If we we bring money we will be able to have some. The people will be glad to buy our tiles. The reason we are doing this is to raise money for WorkAbility. We are also doing it to learn skills. We are looking forward to future jobs. That is what we learned about this week. Thank you very much.
