My Students

The students at my school come from a wonderfully diverse set of backgrounds. My school is located in the heart of a mid-sized city where there is such a vast mix of poverty and affluence. Our school serves all of these families.

Our school is a Title I school because many of our families are living in poverty.

Many parents are not able to provide the life experiences that many of us would see as “typical.”

The students in my middle school Special Education classroom have disabilities ranging from Specific Learning Disabilities to Emotional Disabilities. The students in my classroom are vibrant and excited to learn.

My students have been impacted by the COVID-19 school closure, learning has been moved to virtual learning for the remainder of the school year. To meet their individual learning needs, I am recording lessons so they can continue to be successful and make progress toward their goals.

My Project

Like many schools throughout the United States, my school district has moved to virtual learning for the next several weeks due to public health concerns. I want to continue to deliver high-quality instruction for my Special Education students.

Creating instructional videos for my students will allow me to be able to use my knowledge of subject matter, teaching and learning, and technology to facilitate experiences that advance student learning, creativity, and innovations inside my Virtual Special Education classroom.

The magic keyboard will allow me to quickly edit videos and streamline the process for uploading online for students to view.

I plan to develop a series of instructional videos that can be used for students who may be struggling to comprehend material independently. While there are many instructional videos online, students respond better to videos from a familiar teacher who uses consistent terminology and teaching methods.
