Mrs. Fordham from Flint MI is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Auditory Processors

My students need headphones to help them focus on the objectives in front of them. Many times, outside noises interrupt the train of thought. Good. secure, soundproof headphones can increase test scores and eliminate distraction.

My Students

My students are special because they have triumphed and are still leaping over obstacles of diversity and strife that they face in our city every day and with the struggles of education. My students have to fight adversity every day and they love school. School is their place to escape from worries. I just want to help students have a dream in this life and become productive citizens.

My students are smart, witty, boisterous, wild, cool, crazy, fun and they're all mine!

All they need is a helping hand and someone to believe in them.

My Project

Currently, I have minimum headphones. The ones that I have only has audio on one ear, muffled in sound quality or broken. We need them! Having adequate headphones for my students will help increase their focus level by transmitting sound directly into their ears. Headphones act as an aid in education. Students are less distracted and more engaged in what their doing with headphones. They allow for outside noises to be blocked out, which in turn, causes students to be more engaged. Technology is an increased need in my classroom and a need for quality audio is a must for students to learn and succeed over time.
