My Students

I teach amazing students in 4th and 5th grade with special needs. Their classifications include Emotional Disabilities, Intellectual Disabilities, Other Health Impairment, Speech and Language delays, and Autism.

Engaging electronically will provide fun and creative opportunities for learning while maintaining our safety!

My Project

Moving forward in our new Post-COVID learning environment, my students will have to adapt to different forms of engagement! There will be socially distanced seating and individualized materials. Maintaining distances, partnered with the inability to share materials and socialize will be particularly challenging for students with special needs. My students work daily on their academic needs, as well as their social-emotional development.

The tablets will provide my students an opportunity to maintain their space, while also engaging to the greatest extent possible with the assistance of technology.

During remote learning, my students and I successfully journeyed together using a multitude of technological resources. I'd love to maintain this success in our classroom moving into our new school year.

Please consider any donation towards making this transition easier!
