My Students

They are children from homes that everything they buy is needed to survive, and there are no options of buying the fun stuff. When they come to my room, they look for me to be a little different than their general education teacher. My students see me 5 times a week for 45 minutes a day.

I work in a very special district, the parent in my district are so appreciative of what the teachers do for their children.

We play a lot of different roles in these children's lives and our parents really respect us for that, that's why I try to offer a variety of activities in my classroom daily.

My Project

I want my children to be able to survive in a world of technology. I want them to know there is more out there than Instagram and Facebook. I want them to see the world of discovery. I want them to learn how to use the computer to help them in the future not hurt them. I teach groups of five and would love each child to be able to have their own Chromebook when they come to my room. I am teaching them how to overcome their disability and tell them their is whole world out there that can make their life a little simpler.
