At Mountain View Elementary, the K–3 students I work with all have emotional challenges. They come to me with everything from mood disorders to PTSD to autism. There isn’t one particular type of kid; they all arrive with their own issues and it’s up to us, the teachers, to figure out how to give each student the attention and help they need, while at the same time maintaining classroom order.

Have you ever found yourself in this situation? You agree to give a presentation at a big conference and spend weeks creating the perfect PowerPoint. You practice until you can recite your speech in your sleep. You arrive at the venue to discover you are presenting in a large room with no AV connector for your Laptop or audio equipment available. Or maybe the venue does provide a projector or audio system but when you arrive, the AV technician or engineer is nowhere to be found and you are left to fend for yourself, fumbling with cords and speakers while the crowd anxiously awaits your presentation.

How My School Uses Redcat:
As a high school English teacher, my lessons frequently involve class discussions with most of the comments made by students. For example, I recently used the Redcat when discussing chapters in the novel The Catcher in the Rye. I asked my students questions, then I then passed around the microphone so everyone in the room was able to clearly hear their comments, answers, and responses.

At Dogwood Elementary School in Heber, CA, where I am the principal, we use Redcat classroom audio systems to assist in teaching English learners. The system allows students to hear distinct sounds that are sometimes less audible during pronunciation. We find this is a tremendous benefit to beginning readers and students learning a new language.
