My Students

We are a small K-5 school filled with students who are wonderful to work with! They are a diverse group of students in terms of race, income, gender, and ability levels, all looking for a chance to be successful. I have students who work at high levels and love to be challenged, down to students who need that nudge.

Many of them struggle with issues adults couldn't deal with, but still find a way to come to school and participate in the learning process.

We are a family of learners, myself included. Every day is a new day of learning, loving, and respecting each other. We are an awesome community working hard at being the best that we can be!

My Project

Have you ever sat in a room with 27 students, each of them trying to listen to a video or program on their computer? I have! I have watched bent heads as students try to hear what is being said on their computer, and not the person's next to them. I have heard, "Mrs.Mims can I go in the hallway?"" many,many,times.

Headphones help students focus on what they are learning because they are able to phase out the distractions around them.

When my students are given a video to watch, a tutorial, or an audiobook to listen to, actually hearing and understanding the content is huge! Only so many students can be sent in the hallway!

The headphones that are provided will give my students a chance to clearly hear the content of what they are listening to. Clearer content, focused learning, less distractions add up to a successful school year.
