Accessibility Problems

I promise to do better in the future.

I just completed twenty-seven SiteImprove accessibility modules and learning paths. The topics ranged from accessible remote classrooms to accessible websites and accessible documents. All of this made me realize that my website and documents are not at all accessible. Unfortunately, I am too busy with remote teaching to make any of the necessary repairs right now.

I pledge that all new content will be more accessible than my old content. I am starting right now by making sure that this post has a heading 1. I have no idea when I will have the time to fix the mistakes that I made in the past, but at least I can do better beginning with today.

I sincerely apologize to everyone who depends on or prefers accessible content. In fact, accessible websites and documents are better for everyone! I am still learning, but I can and will do better in future posts and other additions to this website.

I am a special education teacher who supervised a technology lab for twenty five years. The lab had specialized software, adapted mice, additional adapted hardware, and picture symbol communication aids for students whose significant disabilities made it difficult for them to use the general computer lab. I taught students who could not climb the stairs to my lab in their classrooms. I also assisted teachers and other personnel in my school with their technology needs as time permitted. Before moving to the technology lab, I was a classroom teacher with a classroom computer that students and staff could use. Now, I am a semi-retired substitute teacher.
