My Students

I am an intervention assistant in an amazing suburban school district. The classroom I provide interventions for is a full inclusion class filled with eager to learn students. Our room has 20 beautiful children who work hard and do their best on a daily basis. The general education teacher and I take pride in making sure our classroom is known for its kindness and inclusion.

It is my mission to make sure each and everyone of my 8 and 9 year old students in class not only are provided with the best education, but also have all of their basic needs provided for.

I love my job and working with these amazing kids. Throughout the day while the students are learning and working on their math, language arts, social studies, and science lessons I help by encouraging them, provide them with interventions to better learn the content regardless of their disabilities, and always provide them with an ear to hear them or my arms to give them a friendly hug to get them through their days. I love my job and hope to always be able to be the teacher that made a difference in their life.

My Project

My students use Chromebooks everyday for lessons in writing on Google Docs, math, and reading websites. Most of the students I work with have fine motor disabilities and struggle with using the track pad on the Chromebooks to change their fonts, sizes, colors, or to click on websites and other places on their screens.

I want my students with physical disabilities to have access to wireless mice to be able to use to move while on their Chromebooks.

This will help them click in an easier way as this will accommodate their fine motor disabilities. A lot of times my students cannot physically manipulate the track pad and need a mouse. We used to have a few mice with wires but they have all broke forcing teachers to have to sit with each child and do it for them. The wires also get in the way which is frustrating for my students and make them shut down and not want to work.

By having mice, all of my students with disabilities will be accommodated for on their Chromebooks. The pack of batteries will ensure that we always have the ability to recharge them when their batteries run out! The requested container will be used to store the mice and to keep them safe for years to come.
