My Students

I love having a job where I look forward to the next day! In my Title I school, the 1st grade team works hard to meet the needs of each of our students, both educationally and emotionally. We want our students to get the best education they can, while having fun and learning life lessons that will carry with them through the rest of their education and lives. Many are economically disadvantaged and don’t have the opportunities that we try to give each of them.

My Project

I am hoping to get a pair of quality headphones for each iPad in the first grade iPad cart. We have all supplied headphones or earbuds for our students but they break so easily because we can’t afford the best quality in such a large amount.

There are only so many times I can hear the following without making a change!

“Ms. Pressau I can’t hear anything.” “Ms. Pressau these hurt my ears." “Ms. Pressau these won’t stay in.”

Please help bless the first grade so that they can enjoy (and hear) when it’s their turn in the listening station!
