Description

Class Experience

Students will learn about the benefits and "superpowers" that often accompany ADHD. 
I have been teaching for more than 17 years, and I have a Master's degree in education. Coursework in understanding and teaching exceptional students was required to complete this degree. 

I have also had many students with ADHD in my classes. In my years teaching 4th and 5th grade, I became known for my approach and success with students who struggled with their ADHD. Whether it was my high-energy teaching style or just the soft spot I have for these students, they have seemed to excel in my class.

Recently I have become more interested in this topic. After some research, I gave a presentation on this subject matter to the staff in my home school assistance program. It was my goal to inform and also to encourage teachers to look at students with ADHD through the positive lens that they deserve to be seen in. It occurred to me that students who have ADHD could really use this information as well. Perhaps if they knew more about the benefits that can accompany their ADHD, they may be better able to harness them and feel better about themselves as a whole. 

It is my hope that after taking this class, students will see their ADHD as less of a burden and in a more positive light.

I will provide a free graphic organizer that students will fill out as they learn. Students will need a pencil and perhaps some colored pencils if they are feeling creative!
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
