My Students

My amazing 4th and 5th graders come from a diverse background facing various obstacles. Our school is a Title 1 school and all of our students receive free lunch. My students enjoy telling stories and jokes. My students are thoughtful and full of questions. Although the method and environment in which they learn best varies from others, they love hands-on active engaging learning. Many of them come to class daily saying they could not complete assignments due to lack of resources.

My Project

These headphones will help my students meet their individual goals and allow them to participate in class to the greatest possible extent. They will be able to engage in a interactive learning environment designed to assess students and also provide individualized instruction based on each ones unique need. Interactive learning plays an important role in the lives of my special needs students. The use of technology in our class helps break the barriers for people with disabilities and provides them with access to the most relevant educational programs. The use of headphones will allow my students to get modern education and boost their self-esteem.
