Upgrading Our Tool Belts

My students need an upgrade for their toolboxes. Each student needs a mouse and headphones to use their Chromebooks independently. Our students also needs scientific calculators and large print calculators for success in math and science.

My Students

I work with a wonderful and diverse group of students that range from 6th through 12th grade. No two children are the same with multiple and severe handicaps. These students have a few more hoops to jump through than others. My students learn while learning to overcoming their multiple disabilities.

We are learning focused and strive to tackle new challenges daily!

My job as a educator, is to find the best ways to reach and teach my students. Using all available options I set up individualized learning for each student to reach their maximum potential. In a self contained classroom for severe and profound students I am able to effectively create and track goals for all students.

Our student body is quite diverse: 50% Caucasian, 42% American Indian, 4% Hispanic, 2% African American and 2% Asian. Out of these students, approximately 15% of those are in special education. We provide free or reduced-price lunches to 47% of our students as well. Our overall state score is a B+ as we hold high expectations for all of our students.

My Project

Our students need an upgrade in their tool belts to remain successful. Normal wear and tear has slowly depleted our tools in the classroom. With your help we would like to refill our tool belts with new materials!

We need to upgrade our tool belts with new headphones, scientific calculators, large print calculators and a mouse for each student.

Fulfilling this project will provide each of my students with the tools they need to succeed. We are a truly lucky class with access to computers and laptops daily. In order to get the best use of these resources we need an upgrade in tools!

We use our laptops and computers daily. We do lessons with Mathematics, Reading, Science and Social Studies. These resources help them to better manipulate on screen activities, using the headphones it helps them to hear and block out other distractions and calculators help to do the small stuff while they conquer the big tasks!
