My Students

My students are awesome! They care deeply about everything that happens at school and home. We celebrate diversity with open arms. My students are filled with amazing energy, kindness, and enthusiasm. They work hard and are natural learners with keen powers of observation.

My students absolutely love hands-on, active, engaging projects and challenges that allow them to think outside the box to find.

Every single one of my students has integrity and a positive attitude. My goal is to educate, cultivate, and inspire all of my students academically and physically, and motivate them for future learning.

We are still recovering from Hurricane Harvey and looking forward to another school year and future. Our community is stronger with pride after Hurricane Harvey.

My Project

My students work independently on their iPads daily. They need reliable, personal earbuds that can use in the classroom. Most of my students are unable to afford earbuds or can only afford the low quality ones that don't last.

In order for this to be successful in my classroom, students need to have their own pair of headphones.

By providing my class with new earbuds, my students will be able to maximize their use of technology, science, independent work time and will make world of difference in my students' learning. In addition, Maxwell Dynamic earbuds will also help my students concentrate on their work whether they are using iPads or working in small groups.
