My Students

I teach the third grade Special Education Autism Core Program at our school. We are a Title I school, meaning that more than three-quarters of the students in our school come from low‑income households. Besides autism, some of my students also have anxiety, ADHD and specific learning disabilities. However, despite their disabilities, they always come to school with smiles on their faces.

My students' smiles bring joy to my life, and they make my days more enjoyable.

They work hard and follow the Core Curriculum at the same pace as the general education students. This workload is sometimes difficult for them, and it requires me to constantly think of ways to help them stay focused and engaged so that they can be successful in the classroom. My students love to learn, and I always encourage them to try their best.

My Project

I want my students to learn skills that will help them in their future. Digital media is growing more each day and I want to teach my students how to use editing software as they work on editing photos of their classroom experiences.

My students need the Photo Explosion software to edit their photographs and create amazing collages.

I have found this software to be very easy to use and perfect for beginners. Photo Explosion delivers powerful editing features, spectacular special effects and professional-quality photo projects all together in one program. All while being user friendly. My students will be able to learn new digital editing skills that they can use in the future. They also need a hard drive to save their projects so that they can add to their creations throughout the year. The photo paper will allow us to print their creations so that they have a keepsake of their school experiences.
