Each student I teach possesses special talents. I like to think of them as their superpowers. I believe it is my job as an educator to help students discover their strengths and passions. In my classroom, they are exposed to a variety of scientific visualization projects. Some find they love the science, some love the art, some love the technology and, of course, some love none of the above. All are valid and essential in shaping wise career choices. There is a quote by Albert Einstein on my classroom wall that reads: "Everybody is a genius, but if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing it is stupid."
Although my students come from vastly different backgrounds, each has special aptitudes that deserve to be discovered and nurtured through technology.
Quite a few of my students work long hours outside of the school day in order to help their family make ends meet. Due to their work hours, they are sometimes absent and/or sleepy in the classroom. If I have a 'library' of wifi cards I can check out to students, it will provide them the ability to catch up for school work missed beyond their control. While many of us take internet access for granted, many of my students do not have internet access outside of the school day. My assignments are math and science based and do require internet access.
