My Students

My amazing Pre-K class is located in bright, sunny Florida. Our Pre-K program is connected with the local school district and all of my students who have special needs attend our program free of charge. Our wonderful classroom has 13 precious students with many varying levels of special and sensory needs. We have 9 ESE (Exceptional Student Education) and 4 VPK (Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten) students, but we will quickly add 5 more ESE students before the end of the school year making our class total 18 students. The ages of our class range from three to five year old students.

My students are very caring, loving, and eager to absorb the world around them.

They all learn in a non-traditional way and need hands-on experiences on a daily basis to learn and retain new information. Our Pre-K program is beginning its third year in our elementary school, so we are continuing to add much needed manipulatives and learning materials to help meet all of our students’ needs. These materials will not only help my students in learning and growing, but it will benefit all 36 students in our Pre-K program because we combine our students and team/co-teach every day.

My Project

Times have changed. It's changed before and it will change again. Our classroom needs to stay updated and relevant to ensure the success of the students in it. I look around the room and realize how fortunate I am to have resources that I didn't have back when I was in school; computers, laptops, printers, CD players. My students love learning and interacting with lessons mirrored from my teacher laptop on our large projector screen.

The iPads will help keep what they learn as a group consistent with their independent reinforcement activity.

The new technology addition will help students recognize letters and numbers, learn letter sounds, begin to read, start to write, and learn social skills through social stories. My students know how to use the technology, they've seen it at home used by their parents and older siblings. If the chance is given for it to be implemented into our classroom, I have no doubts that it'll be utilized to its fullest potential.

I've always been hesitant to request high-cost technology materials.

I began to realize that when computers first came out, teachers during that time must have felt the same way. These aren't tools to replace a teacher. Instead, they're tools to supplement learning. The iPads will also allow my students to learn respectful ways to handle technology, an important skills both in and out of the classroom.

By helping to fund my project, you will provide my students with an incredible new tool to assist in their academic and social skills learning.
