My Students

This year I have the pleasure of teaching a great group of first grade students. They come to school eager to learn more about the world around them and ask several questions about what's going on in our world.

These kiddos will come in the door ready to learn and have fun, despite their difficulties at home.

As a teacher in a Title I school, many of my students come from poverty stricken, low-income homes. Some also are learning English as a second language and others have special needs. All of my students receive free breakfast and lunch at school. Some of my students live in a shelter or motels or are living with other families.

They will laugh, cry, hug, giggle, play, and learn all in one place: their classroom. Therefore, I am eager and ready to help them achieve their dreams.

My Project

A classroom of first graders is rarely quiet, which can cause a lot of distractions. Students like to talk to each other, are curious about what others are doing and listening to. Theses headphones help students hear their own program better and not be distracted by other students in the classroom who may be on their own program or talking as a part of hands on activities.

Headphones will give my first graders the help they need to focus on their learning.

In this day and age, technology is a great tool to engage and enhance student learning. However, all of the loud sounds and bright colors can be distracting. My students will benefit greatly from these headphones. They can use them for work on the computers and the iPads, for both our reading and math programs.
