SUMMARY Language Arts/Reading teacher for grades 9-12. Currently, I am in training to become

The past year has been a very positive learning experience for myself and my students. Special needs students get enormous benefit from assistive technology.

My students were especially excited to get letters from Governor Davis. When the project first began, many

students felt that Governor Davis would not give them

“the time of day”. They are now looking forward to next

year’s “get involved” project. I have especially enjoyed working with fellow teachers as a mentor. Through the CTAP workshops, I have seen tremendous improvement in use of technology by those teachers who participated. For myself, a long time MAC user, PC’s are now a part of my love of technology thanks to CTAP.
