|1:1 iPad Classroom||
Just before I applied for the iPad Academy and wrote a Grant to get 6 Emwaves in my class I clicked into this man. By just a click on a link that looked interesting and maybe a bit of luck (I don't believe in luck by the way ) my teaching and professional life spiraled into chaotic yet exciting and productive change. I am grateful to everything lining up at that moment. Up to that click, I had been a solid, dedicated and effective teacher for children with special needs. But I was frustrated, burning out, wanting to leave, even making plans to do so! I was wondering if I was in the right place, I was angry ... but not at my students - they were the ONLY reason I kept making my long mountain drive to school each morning. I knew I was making a small difference for a small group of amazing children with Autism. I still had passion for their growth and well being. You are probably already familiar with this type of feeling if your an educator. BUT I was frustrated by the mood towards public education and towards hard working dedicated teachers.
