My Students

I am a teacher in a low-income, high poverty school district where my students are faced with several obstacles both in and out of the classroom. Even though life may come with some bumps along the way for my kids, I offer a loving and supportive environment so that my students can challenge themselves to work harder in the classroom. Our school is a smaller school, but we have big minds.

When my kids achieve their goals, they smile more often.

Creating a classroom that builds self-esteem is imperative to developing a love of learning. The smiles are what motivate me to give them my all!

My Project

My students need Sony Headphones. With Sony Headphones, my kids can have the text read to them privately on their Chromebooks without the embarrassment of others knowing their struggle to read. Some children need the differentiation, so that they can succeed at their own level. Please help my students with their success toward reading on grade level. My goal is that every child learn to love to read!

I love that fact that I can offer different levels of reading to my students, however, some students need the text read to them.

Using the Sony Headphones will help increase my students' reading levels.
