My Students

I serve students of Monroe County, Tennessee in a special education setting. According to recent data, only 11% of residents in Monroe County have a Bachelor's Degree or higher. I currently instruct over 25 students with various disabilities

Students are like arrows; they fly in the direction in which they are pointed.

My goal is to aim high for our students and point them toward success. Tech savvy students are leading the way toward innovation. I want my students to be included as the next pioneers of space exploration, science, mathematics and technology. Let's give them the tools to achieve success!

My Project

As teachers, we are no longer isolated to our classrooms. We are mobile and on the go. A MacBook Pro would give me access to resources and tools that would otherwise restrict me from connecting with my students. By having access to a MacBook Pro, I would be able to video conference students, create online lessons, utilize Google Classroom, as well as other virtual learning opportunities.

Mac allows me to access flexible tools to spark student imagination.

Mobility and accessibility has become the new expectation for teachers. In a public school setting, neither of those adjectives describe the traditional classroom. The COVID-19 pandemic has forced us to think creatively both in and outside the classrooms and look for inventive ways to teach and connect with students.

I hope you will support educators as we seek to meet these challenging times!
