My Students

Our class is a first-grade inclusion classroom in an urban public school. Serving 300 students in K0 through 5th grade.

Our diversity is our strength and we believe that inclusion means everyone.

Our population is comprised of 7 racial demographics, 15 home languages, and 31 national origins. We have gender non-conforming students and students whose interests align with our society’s gender norms. We have students who open gifts on Christmas, who read from the Torah, and who proudly wear headscarves daily as part of their Muslim faith. We also have students who practice another religion that we celebrate with them or no religion at all. One-quarter of our students have disabilities and are educated in the same classrooms as their peers. Some of our students are descendants of the Pilgrims and some moved to the United States within the last year.

We are proudly one of the most diverse school communities in Boston.

My Project

Our 21st-century classroom uses technology every day, but unfortunately, we have limited funding for headphones. It is difficult for students to get the full experience of iPads and Chromebooks without sound. Many literacy and math apps use sound and reading aloud to make the content more engaging and accessible. Many of our students are auditory learners, and our emergent readers cannot navigate how to use an app or website without sound features. We also use headphones during center time to listen to books. We use built-in microphones on headsets for students to utilize multiple means of expression: to record an oral response, video a weather report, or read aloud a book. Our use of technology is limited without the help of headphones.
