Our school community contains a diverse array of students whose backgrounds and needs are as unique as the families and cultures that proudly support them. We are a school community that is extremely rich in pride, strong in support, and filled with a passion to succeed.
As our school community continues to grow, our classroom continues to be a place where a high degree of emphasis is placed on engaging, innovative, meaningful, and relevant learning.
Each year, I am so proud of the maturity that my students develop when it comes to their learning and personal growth as young adults. It is truly a passion of mine to offer the supplies, resources, and technology that will allow my students to gain the knowledge, as well as practice the skills, needed for success in their future college and career journeys.
I remain thankful for the support of citizen donors as well as corporate sponsors/foundations who continue to impact our classroom and transform it in inspiring ways!
Headphones are ubiquitous accessories for many of my students but, unfortunately, not for all. We are blessed to have Chromebooks issued to every student but are unable to take full advantage of them when it comes to educational videos and tutorials because of the lack of headphones for every student.
Our classroom sounds like an echo chamber when students are analyzing videos because they start and stop at different times so having headphones will dramatically increase the opportunities that I have to include videos within my lessons.
There are many rich TedEd videos, Ted Talks, spoken word poetry, and visual interpretations of captivating issues and concepts that would enhance our classroom immensely if I could provide regular access to them for my students; headphones for every one of my students in every single class is the solution. Thank you for considering our project and for supporting our classroom!
