My Students

I teach 8th grade science at a public middle school in Louisville, Kentucky. My 114 students make up 4 classes of young scientists. Their favorite science topics to learn about are the polar ecosystems and genetic mutations.

My students absolutely love learning digitally and we are always searching for new and creative apps, websites, projects, and devices in order to explore and demonstrate our learning.

We operate in a completely flipped, 1:1 classroom with our very own set of chromebooks! I love designing new, relevant, and digitally "hip" lessons and my students love the opportunities that technology in the classroom provides.

My Project

My 8th graders will use these headphones to view and interact with multimedia resources! In the past we have used donated, low quality earbuds that have quickly blown their speakers or fallen to pieces. For the lessons designed for my students, we need over-the-ear, durable, and reliable headsets to provide an audible space for students to be curious and creative.

These headsets will be used to aide students in interacting with differentiated classroom material, science simulations, , musical projects, recording creative video projects, video chatting with peers and professionals, and beyond!

The opportunities are endless. Help us connect audibly to our content and community!
