My Students

My classroom consists of fourth and fifth grade students with high functioning autism. We are on the Common Core curriculum and follow the same pacing plan as the general education classes.

My students are motivated and have a thirst for knowledge.

I provide a safe and fun environment for them to learn in. Roughly half the day I teach in a whole group setting, while the other half is spent in small group settings where I can pinpoint and focus on individual weaknesses. We are a low income, Title I school made up of ELD and SEL students. Most of my students do not have access to technology outside of the classroom.

My Project

Margaret Mead said, "Children must be taught how to think, not what to think." As a teacher of students with very curious minds and needs, it is my job to give them the tools they need. The donations will allow them to explore the world and give them access to so much more content.

A powerful tablet and headphone for our classroom will allow my students to better access content for todays curriculum.

They can also exercise their creativity with application such as Keynote, iMovie, and Garage Band. A pair of headphones will also allow them not to disturb other classmates while they work on their projects. With our iPad Pro, I want my class to have the opportunity to learn how to play the piano and read music with an app called "Real Piano". Arts and Music have been stripped from our schools. Let's bring it back!
