My Students

Hello everyone, I am a teacher in a Title I and Title 3 school in Queens, NY. I teach self-contained, special education and wouldn’t have it any other way! Even though I only have 12 students, their needs are very important.

My students need hands-on learning to explore all of the academics within the life skills and 2nd-grade curriculum.

My students are hardworking students like everyone else; however,​ they all have special accommodations to better their learning! Help my students explore learning with visuals and hands-on experiences. They need to incorporate technology to advance and enhance their learning experiences.

My Project

Having an opportunity to have technology in the classroom is so exciting! I am already thinking about how I can support my students on the autism spectrum, students with learning disabilities, hearing impairments, and so much more! I already figured out that if I get these iPads donated, I can specially design my student’s instruction by creating goal-based individualized work that will be one to one for their needs. I also can video myself during the mini-lessons and allow for my students who need a reteach to watch the video and have another one on one mini-lesson! The opportunities are endless, and I really would be so grateful for this opportunity to earn these for my students with disabilities! Please donate to meet the needs of my babies!
