My Students

My students are completely amazing, and teach me everyday! They vary in ages and grades. They bravely fight to overcome sensory issues, learning difficulties, and disabilities. They have communication barriers-for most are non-verbal, while the others fight to get their voice out. A large part of our day is learning how to communicate as we work on speech and literacy. They have captured my heart with their love for others, and their desire to learn. They just learn differently, and different is great!

My Project

I want my students to be able to become familiar with technology and access apps to reinforce skills in Math, Science, and Reading. Chromebooks will help students who are kinesthetic and visual learners to individualize their learning. Our learning environment is unique and with the touchscreen Chromebook will become the tool that will create more authentic learning experience at each students abilities.

These Chromebooks would allow students to be able to hear literature, see examples when solving math problems and use the touch scree to answer questions while learning cooperatively.

These Chromebooks will provide an engaging learning experience for all of my students.
