My Students

Our community of learners are the most sincere students around. We have students with a range of learning disabilities, health impairments and developmental delays that impede learning when compared to same age peers. ADHD, dyslexia, fetal chemical effects and memory deficits are a few of the challenges that these kiddos face. Additionally, our school is located in a very impoverished neighborhood. Our students endure hardships in their personal lives that they bring to school with them. It remains my job to make them feel safe as well as inspire them to learn despite these hardships.

All these challenges do not stop us from getting to work; we all work hard and understand that by persevering with a growth mindset and putting our resources to good use, we will meet our learning growth goals.

My Project

We are all in this together and teachers need to procure appropriate tools to offer the best online instruction possible. I want to be able to give 100% to my students and that means that I need to be able to provide instant feedback via computer and create online videos to do virtually what I cannot do in person. A small laptop computer does not allow me to navigate the necessary platforms, program and resources. A larger, second monitor will allow me to work quickly for both grade levels in between the two departments (ELA and Special Education). I appreciate your consideration as I am making every effort to make distance learning a success. Thank you!
