My students are some of the most resilient, energetic, and inspiring young people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. Many of them come from single-parent homes, most qualify for free or reduced-price lunch at our Title I school, and a large number of them have had to endure homelessness. They are also leaders and role models for the younger siblings they help care for while parents are at work.
Regardless of the struggles that they may face, my students still find a way to show up to class smiling every single day, virtually now during distant learning.
They are excited about their future and all of the possibilities that await them; while they are aware it will take a lot of work and dedication to get there. I have never met a more capable group of young people.
Through distant learning, many of our students are without a way to hear instruction and be heard. This can be because of a non-quiet environment or other distractions.
With these earbuds, our students will be able to hear and be heard!
These earbuds will allow our students to be actively engaged during our online lessons and hear and contribute to the daily remote instruction. Such a valuable tool in these times of need. Our students’ voices need to be heard, and these earbuds with a microphone will give them that power to be heard.
