I teach ninth through twelfth grade special education students who range from emotionally disturbed to having learning disabilities. I work for the NYC Department of Education and teach high needs students in the South Bronx. These students have changed my life as they come from the most horrific life backgrounds and they still persevere to bring the very best to my classroom and broader community. I want to return the favor by giving them basic resources that will undoubtedly prepare them for life after high school. This Chromebook and headphones will make a tremendous difference in the way they learn and interact with one another.
I have selected the bare necessities for one of my special education classes that is desperate for tech supplies. These items will promote student progress and help my wonderful students learn life skills while feeling appreciated by having working technology in the classroom. The class consists of about 11-12 high needs students who will be learning about the global world they live in. The headphones help build autonomy and individual growth. The speaker is a necessary part of our video analysis and the computer is need for the projector we use to display all the information students learn in class.
