My Students

As an older sibling to two brothers with autism, I have an intimate understanding of the challenges denying students with disabilities the education they deserve. Now, as a special education teacher, I am constantly seeking support in finding resources to support my students' needs.

Our school is changing our teaching model so that we can include more students with disabilities who have been historically separated from their peers.

This means that for the first time we will have two teachers in every classroom. As a result, our school will have a lot more opportunities to teach students exactly what they need in small groups​. This project is designed to support all our students by providing our classroom with engaging texts to be used during full-group and small-group literacy instruction.

I teach in grades 3, 4, and 5 as a special education and ESL teacher. Each class has approximately 30 ROCK stars from all over Boston's neighborhoods! They are respectful, open, cooperative, and kind. In addition, each class has about five students with autism who are included from substantially separate classrooms. At our school, we believe learning is better together!

My Project

Our students have thrived in their studies with the use of technology. Our students are very proficient on Chromebook computers. Now, we are hoping that they can have a 21st century learning experience with a document camera.

Throughout our school day, we could use our document camera and projector to display student work, lesson presentations, and interactive videos.

Many of my students who are Emerging Bilinguals or Students with Exceptionalities benefit from additional visual supports during lessons. They utilize graphs, charts, thinking maps, and diagrams as they learn. In order to provide this support, we need an effective document camera that will enhance students' abilities to share and collaborate with one another. While learning about angles and fractions, my students will be able to see me model using manipulatives in the front of the classroom. A new document camera will also be used to display students' mathematical problem solving, writer's workshop pieces, and scientific thinking. Displaying this work enables classmates to learn from, and celebrate, one another's applied thinking and strategies. Collaboration and connection at its best.

With a new document camera we can share, celebrate, and display my students' work. As I work to create engaging and motivating lessons I need to know that our document camera will be there to support them. Having a working document camera in our classroom is an essential tool my students need to properly access the curriculum in an engaging and interactive way.
