My Students

I have the pleasure of teaching across the grades all students, including students with special needs who are struggling with their reading and math comprehension. My students are eager to learn, but perhaps need a different way to learn. I try to make our lessons stress-free, but when a child knows they are having difficulty learning, it sometimes proves to be impossible.

This is where learning while laughing would be beneficial.

We need to bring back laughter to our schools! Children need to understand that it is possible to giggle and learn.

My Project

My special need students are desperate to add a Microsoft Surface Pro 6 to our STEM activities. This will help and enhances the many activities that we do during all our science lessons. We want to write , create, and animate our work and projects. Can you imagine the faces of my students when they see their work come alive or watch an experiment come to life. Not only will they write, but produce their own research reports on a computer. The possibilities are endless.

Imagine, the look in the children's eye, when the children see their work on a computer, not just on paper.
