My Students

I have a wonderful classroom of students who are deaf. They are enthusiastic about learning hands on projects, where language is understood by doing.

My students are in a self-contained deaf and hard of hearing classroom where all subjects are taught.

Each child is unique in their learning. As a specialized learning center, my students thrive with hands on learning.

Since many are just learning language, visual tools help them to be successful. Each child wants to do their personal best and contribute to the classroom and the community.

Although they have many obstacles, these children are happy and eager to learn!

My Project

These hands on science experiments will allow my deaf students to experience science in action. Because my students are deaf, experiencing the science project allows my students to understand core science concepts in an inexpensive, fun, and innovative way. With rocks, students will identify rock formations and fossils. Students will see chemical reactions with color explosions and fizzy bombs. Visibly seeing the Earth in layers will help students understand the physical make up of planets. Using a molecular model helps in understanding the make up of matter. Circuit kits help students understand electricity. Seeing body structures help students understand the workings of how the body works.
