My Students

My kindergarteners are full of wonder, enthusiasm, and kindness as they rush into school each morning. We share our days in a beautiful neighborhood school that celebrates mindfulness, diversity and community. Although we face daily challenges that are directly intertwined with poverty, we strive to grow and learn as much as we can in the time we have together.

We look at the world with fresh new eyes, full of wonder.

We spend our days learning, building and growing together. Throughout the day, we share many opportunities to engage our curiosity and learn from each other.

My Project

My school works hard to supply resources for students. Currently we have access to Chromebooks, but very uncomfortable headphones for student use. Often, my students struggle with adjusting their headphones for comfort, rather than focusing on the learning at hand.

New, comfortable headphones would make a world of difference for my little learners.

They can focus on reading, writing and math without the worry of pain from headphones that are too large.

Students would each have their own pair, ensuring comfort, cleanliness and efficiency when we work on our weekly computer literacy programs. Our students deserve to be prepared for the digital world, regardless of their income level.
