My students are considered special education because they have emotional and behavior difficulties due to trauma or mental illness.
Many of my students come from group homes and can't adjust to any General Education campus.
They are sent to our school in hopes that we, as educators can find a way to teach them the proper social etiquette for a campus environment.
My students are so special and loving but are very misunderstood. The teachers in my school have long hard days but we love our jobs and support each other and the other students.
Reinforcement time is important because our students have a hard time seeing future rewards tied to present behavior. This TV monitor will let me create a reinforcement system to reward my students for socially acceptable behavior. Our students have had a very challenging school career and I would like to create fun and an exciting school environment.
School has been a challenging and stressful environment for my students for most of their learning and educational lives.
The television will allow me to use movies, games and educational DVD's to stress fun and learning in the classroom. The earphones will allow the students to use the reward system without disturbing the learning of others.
