Celebrate Black Teachers and Students

This project is part of the Black History Month celebration because it supports a Black teacher or a school where the majority of the students are Black.

My Students

I teach First Grade at a historically underserved and culturally diverse PK-5 school nestled in Northeast Portland. We are an International Baccalaureate (IB) and Mandarin Immersion school with many diverse learning opportunities for our students. It is this diversity that makes our school such a vibrant place for learning.

My students are curious, creative, and eager to learn.

They come from different backgrounds and welcome everyone into our community. They support, encourage, and challenge each other daily. They’re full of questions about the world and stories to tell from their own personal experiences.

Their love for learning can be seen as they set goals for themselves and persevere through challenging tasks.

My Project

Please help me give my students a class set of comfortable computer headphones that will allow them to work independently. My students use independent computers regularly in our classroom for differentiated and supplemental instruction. They enjoy listening to stories on the computer, recording videos of themselves sharing as well as, practicing math and literacy skills.

In order for my students to work independently on the computers, they need well-fitting and comfortable headphones made for children.

Our current headphones are uncomfortable, made of hard plastic with no padding and have cords that are no longer in good condition. That is why I am requesting a class set of headphones made for children and storage bags. Your donation will give each child a pair of headphones that will be assigned to them and they’ll be able to use them throughout the year. Thank you for your support.
