My Students

I have been a special education teacher for over eight years at my school which is located in Fort Greene, Brooklyn. I teach a self-contained class with a paraprofessional. Together, we make the most of what we can for our students. We try to meet all their needs, whether academic, social, emotional, physical, or personal. Since our students come from low socio-economic households, we provide as much as we can out of our pockets so that they can succeed in school without ever feeling bad or left behind. Not all of them reside with their parents or see their parents on a daily basis, so we have to be parent figures for them. We are here for them no matter what the capacity or mission is.

We want them to become successful individuals no matter what strategies and techniques we have to put in place in our nurturing and safe environment.

My Project

Many of our students do not have access to computers, laptops, smartphones, or even tablets in their households. Therefore, all the exposure they receive from learning about new technology is in the classroom. Students over the last few months have learned how to conduct research, use Google Classroom to make brochures, and add effects to their end products because each student was taught the proper skills needed.

With technology being mandatory in today's society and career opportunities, students need all the resources to be better prepared for the world that awaits them outside of the typical school day.

A color printer would allow students to see their end products in its fullest effect. How different and cool would something look if it were in color compared to black and white? Students would be able to actually make things, such as pamphlets, flyers, brochures, advertisements...etc connecting to the curriculum they are learning in the classroom.

For some students, the use of color allows the students to learn better because of their specific learning style. Since all students do not learn the same way, having such products would better accommodate their learning needs and enhance their success rate in school. We need our students to have the necessary 21st Century Skills in order to prosper in the real world beyond the school years.
