George Evans said it best, "Every student can learn, just not on the same day, or the same way.” That philosophy lives and breathes in our classroom. Each of our students is unique and curious about the world around them.
Our school is a public separate school that serves students ranging in age from preschool to age 22 with severe to profound cognitive and/or physical disabilities.
Our students come from various backgrounds and continue to write the story of this school with each passing day. When I first visited the halls of this school, I was amazed by the caring, loving, and family-oriented atmosphere. The focus our school has on building community, family and student-teacher relationships guide students to their maximum potential. It is our responsibility to continue to foster this love of life and learning by providing appropriate experiences, education and learning tools.
My students need tablets to be able to connect with the world in new ways and build early literacy, math and technological skills.
With the addition of tablets into our classroom, we my students will be able to access apps that reinforce skills and enable higher level learning.
Tablets helps students who are kinesthetic and visual learners open the doors of education and individualize their learning experiences. The tablets will become a tool that will help create more authentic learning experiences in the classroom as well as build twenty first century skills that our children need in order to be successful in a quickly evolving technical world. My students will be able to work in centers with the tablets, writing, reading, learning phonemic awareness skills, working with math manipulatives.
