My Students

Each child in my classroom absolutely loves learning but they have different learning styles. We incorporate a variety of learning strategies, group work, and alternative seating and learning options to ensure that each student's needs are met, right where they are! They are truly an incredible group, and I am so lucky and thankful to have a new group of learners that are excited and ready to learn each year! They love technology and it supports them in many different academic areas.

My Project

My students have different learning styles and they benefit a lot from the use of technology. For example, speech to text and online reading programs. They are also very interested in technology to further their learning. They do not always have access to workable technological devices at home. It can be difficult for them to do their homework and study for exams without the use of technology. They love the audio books online and using programs to learn more about reading, writing, and math. Technology also helps them to become more independent when trying to finish an assignment or task.
