“Everyone Smiles in the Same Language” ~ George Carlin

My name is, Alyssa Radzak and this is my 5th year teaching at South Heart Elementary School as a Special Education Resource Teacher.  I graduated in 2014 from the University of Wisconsin-Stout with my Bachelors degree in Special Education with a minor in Disability services.  I grew up in northern Wisconsin  on Lake Superior and moved to North Dakota in 2014 after graduating from college.  My husband, Josh, and I have 1 son, Jackson, 1 dog (Miko), 1 cat (Murray), and a fish (Tree).  We love to spend our free time traveling, being outside, and cheering on a few of our favorite sports teams – Minnesota Vikings, Minnesota Twins, and the Minnesota Wild!

 

Below I’ve listed some links and apps (ALL FREE!) that will be great resources to use at home during this Extended School Closure.  There are many others out there, these are just ones that I have either used with my students before or have tested and tried out myself that are very easy to use and get access to!
