My Students

As a teacher in a school where half of our students come from a low-income, high-poverty background, I am looking to provide engaging experiences with materials our students may not encounter at home. My kindergarten class is made up of 26 creative and ambitious students who thrive when provided hands-on materials with which to explore the world around them. It is wonderful watching them work together and build these early relationships with one another. Their backgrounds make it challenging for some of my students to find the motivation to come to school and work hard. Despite this, they are resilient, and I see their perseverance each day in my classroom. I want to give them an outlet to channel their energy into something they create organically.

My Project

My Kindergarten students are so fortunate to have the opportunity to experience various forms of technology right in our own school. We explore the skill of active listening through our listening center (interactive audio books), iPads, and computer lab time. Unfortunately, their ability to engage is hindered due to a lack of quality headphones, and they are easily distracted by other sounds. Currently, I do not have a full class set, and the ones we have are falling apart, sporadically work, or scratch when used. I would love to take the burden off our low-income families to provide a pair for their child, and I would love for each student to exhibit responsibility in caring for their own headphones and class tablets. By providing an accessible tablet dock and headphones, students can independently go and retrieve their own device and begin working.
