Ms. Kennedy from Richmond VA is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Can Students LEARN if They Can’t Even HEAR?

Help me give my students headphones that are REQUIRED for their success in so many different levels of learning.

My Students

My kids come from a place where many of them have not gotten to experience the use of technology very much, if at all. They are not given the resources that are necessary for them to develop their minds to the full potential. These children are so talented and special, and just need to receive the resources that the rest of the world gets to dig deep and show the world what they're capable of!

We are working day in and day out to show these kids that they can learn and they will succeed!

My Project

My students NEED headphones to learn ANY sort of material that they are given over the internet. In the year of 2019/2020, some of the most meaningful lessons I assign are accessed through online intervention programs. These programs provide interactive and individualized practice/assessments tailored to each student and their specific needs. I purchased a bundle of headphones at the beginning of the year, but as most of you know about how kids are, the cheap headphones didn’t last long at all. In order for my students to succeed, I am looking to invest in some quality headphones that will last my students an entire year, instead of 2 weeks!
