My Students

My students are all students with special needs, all of them presenting with significant delays in cognitive, communicative, social emotional, and behavioral skills. More than half of the student population that I work with require speech generating devices. My students face many difficulties that are just beyond comprehension to most.

Even though they deal with such difficulties; my students are always bright and excited to learn each day!

To see the joy on their faces when they are able to explore and understand something new makes it all worth while. They become so thrilled about learning new things and acquiring new skills.

My Project

The five requested Chromebooks will be the first addition of technology into my classroom. My class is placed in a new school site, so we have no technology in our classroom at all. The computers will allow the children to access the internet to complete tasks, assignments, and online educational programs. The Chromebooks will also allow students to access various media forms, news articles, and videos to support their understanding of topics.

My main focus for the use of the Chromebooks will be to teach the children how to use technology, applications, and the internet to further their understanding about careers available to them while fostering a knowledge of being able to correctly use technology within the school and job environment.
