My Students

The students in my class are unique, flexible, supportive, and driven. Each of my students has a unique personality that brings positiveness to our class. They help each other become better individuals and students.

In my classroom, technology is a tool for empowerment—it creates a collaborative and innovative space for all students.

In everyday life, the development of life skills helps students to find new ways of thinking and problem-solving. Recognize the impact of their actions and teaches them to take responsibility for what they do rather than blame others. Build confidence both in spoken skills and for group collaboration and cooperation.

My Project

While tablets have become important tools in education today, typing on the computer is still a crucial skill for students to learn. My students will be using a typing program to enhance their typing skills. The students will also be using the keyboard to help finalize their papers with a Google Doc.

The use of technology to enhance learning is an effective approach for many children.

Additionally, students with a learning disability often experience greater success when they are allowed to use their abilities (strengths) to work around their disabilities (challenges). It would be beneficial for each student to have their own iPad with a keyboard.
