My Students

Contained within the four walls of a classroom are the hopes and dreams of the future. My students come from homes of high poverty. My students face the kind of hardships that make the evening news. They are a diverse bunch of children who are curious learners, but lack exposure to things that some of us take for granted. Each child has a unique personality and an ability waiting to be showcased. My mission is to make every child in my classroom feel important, unique, successful and loved.

My Project

At the beginning of this school year, we became a 1 to 1 iPad classroom! Headphones of good quality and durability are essential for the use of iPads. We use iPads for reading, math, learning centers, and for district-required online assessments.

Headphones will help students concentrate on learning and not be distracted by the happenings of a busy Kindergarten classroom.

We do not currently have enough headphones for an entire class. The headphones we do have are old, broken, and more duct tape than headphones at this point. Most produce sound only on one side and are very irritating to our students.
