My students are growing up in a high-risk area, where most people count them out before they even get started. They live in a neighborhood that is primarily in Section 8 housing.
My students have persevered through obstacles, such as trauma each and every day, but show great resilience as they show up to school every single day to learn exciting new things in my classroom.
We are a Title I school and all of the students receive free breakfast and lunch. Most students come to school without having any school supplies from home. It is my hope to update our classroom, by providing resources my students do not currently have access to. No donation is too small to make an impact on my students.
Our class is in need of some headphones to use daily for our math stations. My students have been working hard on their technology lessons for mathematics that are differentiated to the students' instructional levels.
Our classroom currently has only 4 pairs of working headphones, and my largest class is 22 students.
By adding additional headphones to use during online differentiated instruction, students will have their own set to be responsible for. The headphones I am requesting will be able to be wiped down and disinfected to allow students in both of my blocks to share them daily. These headphones will make a huge difference in our school day.
