My Students

My students are 5th through 8th graders who read below grade level. They are eager to learn, but often learning does not come easily to them. Many of my students are years below grade level in reading and writing by the time they come to me. Our goal is to make at least a year of growth each school year. This is a difficult feat. This is difficult because we are an urban school, many of my students come from poverty, and parent involvement is lacking. Teachers that I work with try to overcome this by providing all that we can during the time that we have with them. We can only do this with your support.

My Project

Our school uses a few online based learning programs. These programs give each student individualized instruction on their personalized needs based on an assessment given three times a year. This enables the programs to continuously change the student's personal lessons.

The earbuds will provide each child with the opportunity to hear their lesson(s).

Imagine: 30 students in the classroom and all 30 laptops are speaking to each child... it is noisy and hard to concentrate. These earbuds are essential. The earbuds will allow each student to concentrate on his or her lessons without being distracted by other students lessons. This concentration is key for success.
