from dream to reality

Since I arrived in Commerce in 2009, I’ve dreamed of developing the Assistive Technology Lab. It has been such a fun project to plan! I am sincerely thankful to the many individuals who assisted in making this dream a reality for A&M-Commerce students and practicing teachers alike. As always, A&M-Commerce is leading the way with innovative practices. I sincerely hope that the AT Lab will serve as a vehicle to raise awareness about available technologies and the individuals who benefit from them.
