I teach in a Native Alaskan Subsistence village in rural Alaska. My students are sweet and hardworking. They love to fish, hunt, and pick berries. My students enjoy year round outdoor activities such as swimming, fishing, snowmobiling and driving on the ice road.
The students in our small school are hard working and persistent.
Not only do they complete coursework in our small village, but their flexibility and adaptability keeps them learning in a variety of environments. The students are open, welcoming, caring, and generous of spirit. They love sports, music and video games. They are typical teenagers with big hearts and a wonderful sense of humor.
I work with students in a Special Education setting and many of them need a little boost with math. They love using the computer and when they earn time with some of the learning games we have access to, their excitement for a subject just takes off!
The computer based math programs BrainPOP and Brainzy will help my special needs students that are struggling and behind the rest of their class in math.
The programs are set up to individualize itself to each student, helping my students where they need the most help.
Math can be frustrating when you don't understand what is going on. A chance to have fun, play games, and practice math at the same time can take a subject that often leads to tears to laughter and joy!
