Needs:
I really need some FLIP video cameras, so I can enhance the educational technology of my students. I want us to be able to record important school moments, create student centered presentations, & just reveal to my babies how fun learning & technology can really be.
My Philosophy:
All students are capable of learning on some level. We need only meet students where they are at this moment.
