My Students

I am a special education teacher to an amazing group of third and fourth graders all of which have their own unique qualities, talents, and strengths. The students in my classroom also have their own unique set of challenges such as learning disabilities, emotional impairments, autism, ADHD, and physical/otherwise health impairments.

I believe EVERY child has the ability to be successful in school, regardless of age, race, ability or disability.

They deserve a classroom that is conducive to their learning needs.

My Project

My special education class is part of a 1:1 iPad classroom. Being a 1:1 classroom has made a huge difference in each student’s success. I have seen time on task increase, along with greater success with individualized math and reading lessons. I-pads have also provided for greater access to general education curriculum.

We currently need headphones for our iPads.

These headphones will make a huge difference in the classroom! Our headphones are currently outdated and or not working. We are seeking 10 pairs of headphones so that each student can be successful with their individualized lessons without being distracted by another student’s iPad / Chromebook.
