My students are bright, motivated, and one-of-a-kind individuals. They put a smile on my face each and every day, and they all enjoy coming to school and succeeding in the classroom. I feel so blessed to be their special education teacher, and I am lucky to work in such a rewarding field.
Even though it has become extremely difficult and sometimes frustrating to educate without needed supplies, our students still come to school eager to learn.
Our school rarely has extra funding for enriching material and if they do, the funds are used for older students. Many of my students' families will never have additional money to purchase educational materials. Therefore, I hope to be able to provide a fun and interesting way of learning so my students can succeed in life.
My classroom is missing a piece of technology that would enable my students to create work they can see and use at school and at home, a working printer. Due to lack of funding, my students do not have the necessary textbooks and workbooks they need to be successful in all subject areas. As a result, I need to create the materials for homework. Not having a working printer or copier in the room makes this difficult, and leaves students without the appropriate materials and visual images they need to learn.
With a working printer, the students would be able to create images on the computer that reinforce the new vocabulary and concepts taught in class, and then print these images to use in our learning centers or at home for extra practice.
