My Students

The mantra in my classroom is: "The beautiful thing about learning is that no one can take it away from you." Eloquently expressed by B.B. King, I teach my students to hold on tightly to everything they know because their knowledge is one thing they have full control over.

My students have individual needs because of their various disabilities.

Learning how to read is often the most difficult obstacle they must overcome. I teach middle school students with disabilities such as Autism, Speech and Language Impairments, Specific Learning Disabilities, and Other Health Impairments. They are wonderfully bright children who have struggled for so long that they have started to lose hope. At this critical time in their lives, I need to be the teacher that makes a difference in their education.

My Project

We no longer live in a man's world. We live in the tech's world. More and more, technology influences daily tasks, habits, and interactions. My students would benefit from e-readers because I believe it is more relevant to their learning process. Stick a book in front of them and they moan and groan. Stick a tablet in front of them and all of a sudden, all they want to do is explore (even when they're exploring TEXT). I believe Nooks will offer my amazing students an incentive to learn because it's something they can be excited for!

My students deserve to discover the love of reading that so many others at their age have already found.

I ask you to consider all the things you've learned in this world by reading and how much power it gave you? I owe it to my kids to try every last avenue to inspire them!
