My Students

My students are special because they have learned to preserve in all types of hardship. Growing up in a socioeconomically disadvantaged environment they have developed the kind of survival skills that enables them to navigate life's most difficult experiences.

With a good education students can rise above any situation.

My students are struggling readers. The more they read, the more words they learn. The more words they learn, the more conversations they will have. My students are eager to go the extra mile to be successful readers.

My Project

My students will use the headphones to cancel out the noise and other distractions around them while listening to stories read aloud online. The headphones will enable struggling readers to hear the correct pronunciation of words and mimic the ebb and flow of a story as they read along.

Being distracted is the reason most struggling readers fail to keep up with reading assignments.

Using headphones will help students focus and complete assignments online. Integrating technology is crucial for today's classroom. Having headphones will enable my students to stay focus and enjoy the reading experience. Good listening skills leads to good comprehension. Headphones can make it possible for background noise to disappear!
