My Students

Our school serves students in grades kindergarten through eighth and provides rigorous academics, fantastic teachers and a safe learning environment. As a result, we are consistently one of the top-performing schools in our district.

My students are in the Special Education program.

They are between the ages of five and seven. They have learning disabilities, behavior disorders, autism or communicative disorders. They all come from high poverty houses. Many of the students have been in the same room for a couple of years. They know each other well and work very well together.

My Project

I have a small special education class and an iPad would go a very long way. My students require one to one instruction and having the use of an iPad would assist them to work independently while I am assisting other students in a small group setting. The students could work in pairs while they get a sense of accomplishment by working together on programs on the iPad. My students are young, so starting them off early with technology would be quite beneficial for their future educational goals. There are so many programs to choose from, both educationally based as well as fun to play! Thank you in advance for your donation!
