My Students

My students are from low economic community with special needs to meet their academic goals. My students struggle with putting their words on paper and are in need of two chrome books to take accelerated reader test as well as lessons to boost basic skills in reading, writing and mathematics. My students will benefit from chrome book practice to enhance testing and writing skills. My students with language deficit can use apps to enhance their writing skills on these chrome books. Thank you for supporting our diverse special needs group!

My Project

My special needs students benefit from chrome books to type their research papers and to use the speaking apps to write papers. My students struggle with putting their thoughts into words on paper. This technology will enhance their writing deficits so they can shoot for the stars! By using chrome books my students receive the practice and support to take test and work projects in general education setting. By your support you are a major part of helping my students shoot for the stars in educational endeavors! Thank you for helping meet the needs of my wonderful special needs students!
