My Students

My special needs students need a highly engaging method to increase their reading skills.

I am fortunate to work at a high achieving Title 1 school in southern California where nearly 80% of my students are on free and reduced lunch.

As a special education teacher I am always searching for creative ways to increase my students' reading skills.

My Project

In order to help my students increase their reading skills I would like to have 1 Samsung Galaxy Tablet. With a tablet I will be able to present digital interactive books to all of my students including those that cannot read. In addition to digital books, I will be able to add a variety of reading fluency, and comprehension applications to increase all of my student's reading skills.

Imagine being a third or fourth grader who has never read a book at your own reading level, now imagine having the technology to finally access those books.

With your help, we can get a digital tablet that can make this dream a reality.
