My Students

I teach special education and general education students in an integrated co-teaching setting at a Title I school in Brooklyn, NY. Our school is in an ethnically diverse neighborhood bringing lots of diversity into our classroom. We serve a significant amount of English language learners and students with disabilities as well as students living in poverty.

Our students are motivated scholars with many different learning styles and needs.

Our students love to read, express themselves through journaling and writing and explore mathematical concepts through play and use of manipulatives . Many of our students are visual learners who benefit from repeated practice with a skill. My goal as their teacher is to provide learning resources and to continue encouraging each of my students to grow and meet each of their own individual goals.

My Project

Many of our students are visual learners that greatly benefit from use of pictures and interactive modeling. With use of an iPad, we can quickly and efficiently create charts, pull up pictures and develop writing samples with our students that we will be able to display on the SmartBoard or use during small group instruction.

The accessibility to technology and the ease and mobility of an iPad with a stylus will change the learning lives of our students.

We will be able to easily supply the visual support students need during whole group and small group instruction. With use of technology, many students are more engaged as well. The use of the Apple pencil will allow students to directly write into the iPad where we can model writing processes quickly to keep engagement going.
