My Students

My Kindergarten students are active, social learners. They love to learn and show up every day ready to conquer Kindergarten expectations. They are learning to read, write, do math and still want the chance to play like the young children they are. I try to balance our work and play time as much as possible.

I teach in a Title I, high poverty school.

My students live in a rural community. We are in a Pre-K through second grade building. There are at least four sections of each grade level with 20 students in each room. These energetic students master skills that adults didn't have to master until first or second grade.

My Project

My classroom was once equipped with a fabulous surround sound system. Unfortunately, it has begun to fail after many years of continuous use for the classroom microphone, music, and videos. My students need to be able to hear these items on a daily basis.

The use of a Vizio sound bar, USB hub, and Bluetooth adapter will enable us to keep the music going in kindergarten.

Kinders need to move and music helps us do that. I have also found that my class works quieter if we have music softly playing in the background. Your help in replacing our speakers would be greatly appreciated.
