wordle_sped.jpgI originally chose nursing as my major at Clemson. After 2 years of nursing, I decided to switch my major to special education. I chose special education because I really like the idea of individualized instruction and meeting each child's needs.. I think it's critical for all children to learn in their own best possible way. In my practicum class, my mentor teacher is continually using the SmartBoard but has many difficulties with it. I would like to be able to help her learn more about how to use it without much difficulty. The school also uses the PowerTeacher and Excent program and I am really interested on how it works. I like how you are able to use it from any computer, at work, school, or home. She uses it with much ease and it seems very useful for classroom organization with grading, IEPs, student info, and much more.
