My Students

My precious students are non-verbal with intelligence level that are off the charts. The amount of comical facial expressions and fun gestures shows their unique personalities and benefits to the world.

I love my students dearly because they show me everyday that they are excited to learn!

We have fun, make memories, and discover something new together daily. There are no two days that are alike and my students keep the entire staff on their toes with their individuals needs and abilities.

My Project

My students are in dire need of iPads to increase their communication and learning. The students are non-verbal and need devices to communicate their wants, needs in the classroom and throughout the school. I will use these iPads on a daily basis with the students to increase their skills and abilities.

We are rising and teaching 21st Century Learners and they deserve iPads to help them develop those skills and make communication easier.

Together, we will use these iPads to work to become stronger learners, communicators, and have fun! Teaching communication phrases, numbers and letters will be so much easier and much more fun with these new iPads.
