Mr. Schmitt

My students have a unique way of perceiving and interacting with the world. Visual learning is essential for them, so the lessons I develop consist of many opportunities for visual cues and concepts. What I love most about teaching is helping my students adapt and integrate with their peers. If I can modify the environment or provide just the right amount of supports to accommodate my students' needs and build on their strengths, I will end the day utterly satisfied. Using the tablets in our classroom, my students will work on developing their social skills, together. We will also use them to work on reading, writing, and math: helping to make learning both engaging and rewarding. The tablets are wonderful, supplementary tools, that adapt to the ever-changing needs of our students.
