My Students

Special Education students have unique learning needs. They often require alternate curriculum, and learn at a slower pace then their peers. It is extremely important that they have access to technology that can help motivate them and improve their academic skills.

My students have learning disabilities, orthopedic challenges, ADHD, and Autism.

Many of them also have moderate social and emotional needs as well. They are in regular education classrooms, and come to the Learning Center for small group, academic support. They are often overwhelmed by the rate and complexity of work given to them in their classrooms. It is my job to teach them at the level and pace in which they are capable of learning.... and to make it engaging and fun!

My Project

I am requesting an Apple MacBook Air. My students have limited access to computers at our school. We have 30 Chromebooks, that are shared per grade level. This doesn't give much time for students to work on projects, research, or individualized skills. Our District recently adopted a new Reading and Language Arts curriculum, and I was not provided teachers manuals. I only have access to them on-line. That is also the only way I can provide intensive workbook pages for my students. Having a MacBook would allow me to read the on-line teachers manuals to instruct and provide curriculum to my groups. The students would also be able to work individually or collaboratively on the computer for typing practice, research, and specific skills in all academic areas. The Mac Book enables the use of specialized apps such as ABC Mouse, Phonics Genius, Space Math, One Minute Reader, and many more to practice their academics skills. Apps also help to make learning fun and motivational, while keeping track of their progress.

Thank you in advance for your donation!

I know it will make a huge impact on their school experience!
