Ms. Heather Fanny

Hi, my name is Heather Fanny. I am originally from Clayton, NC. I graduated from UNC-Greensboro with a degree in Elementary Education (K-6) and Special Education. I have taught Special Education in a Lifeskills class for 5 years. I am currently teaching at Smithfield Selma High School in a Lifeskills class.

  • In the Lifeskills classroom, we will be working on basic math, money, time and reading skills. We will also be learning activities that are needed for everyday living. Some examples of these activities are sweeping, cleaning/wiping tables and desks, organizing materials, personal hygiene, and preparing simple food items. We also incorporate calendar daily and each student will have the opportunity to be the calendar teacher for a week. Personal hygiene is important for students and also for them to be able to complete independently. Each student has their personal hygiene box which includes a toothbrush, deodorant, and a hairbrush. The students have personal hygiene time twice a day. 

    Students also have daily classroom jobs which they complete throughout the day. These jobs include attendance keeper, teacher helper, wiping tables/desks, sweeping the floor, passing out materials, sharpening pencils as well as running errands in the school. Each student spends one week completing one job; the daily classroom jobs change weekly. This helps the students have experience with a variety of different job skills during the school day. 

    We also take weekly field trips to Walmart to help purchase food supplies for our breakfast activity. This is an activity we use to help the students have the experience with learning how to purchase items in public, storing food items appropriately, observing how to cook the food, and cleaning a kitchen once they have finished cooking. The students help prepare all the breakfast activity for the staff at SSS.
