My Students

The students I service are all exceptional needs students in an urban area. Their areas of disability range, with the most being Specific Learning Disability. I work with students who are progressing consistently; students who grasp most concepts; and students who need some motivation.

I want all of my students to be able to reach their maximum potential.

My classroom will be a place of learning and growing. I can control what happens in my classroom, although I can not control what my students encounter outside of school. With technology becoming increasingly important in today's society, it is vital for our students to interact with it in the school setting. Currently we have one desktop computer in my classroom. Chromebooks will allow students to engage and interact with updated technology. Having Chromebooks would allow for multiple student to access technology for the provision of educational opportunities they may not otherwise enjoy.

My Project

Technology is a vital part of our society today. I want to teaching my students to interact with it responsibly and use it to their benefit.

Chromebooks would allow multiple student to access our research based computer intervention programs.

Currently my classroom has one desktop computer.

The Chromebooks would allow for more access to educational programs, such as, Lexia and MobyMax to reinforce basic skills and strengthen all academic areas. These programs meet the student at their current level and helps them progress to were they need to be. More exposure will help improve my students performance scores during achievement testing.
