Can You Hear Me Now?!?

My students need a portable PA system.

My Students

"I like to listen. I have learned a great deal from listening carefully. Most people never listen." Ernest Hemingway ~ Have you ever tried to listen to something and found yourself distracted, confused or unable to hear? Imagine a room full of students with these issues. What can be done to help?

Our school is a high-poverty school located in South Carolina.

It is THE hidden gem in our county. We are quickly moving to a STEM curriculum and our new focus is on technology. My students have the desire and drive to learn! They soak in everything I give them - but it's hard for them to hear me clearly. Our room is large and even on my best days, my voice tires out. The learners in my classroom have a range of needs from English language learners to students with attention deficits. Research has shown that voice amplification systems can provide clarity of meaning (important for ELL students) and keep the attention of students that might otherwise be distracted. Imagine: more students on-task, more learning taking place, and a minimal loss of instructional time redirecting students. How wonderful!

My Project

I am requesting a wireless voice amplification system that includes a teacher (clip on) microphone and an additional microphone that students can use when doing presentations or answering questions. The speaker will be stationary and placed in a prominent location so that every student will benefit. These items will be use EVERY day.

Your donation will provide these students a greater chance at success in the first grade.

This amplification system will be instrumental in supporting their specific needs. As Hemingway said, "... I have learned a great deal from listening carefully." My students can too :)
