My Students

I teach a diverse group of twenty-eight kindergarteners in a high poverty neighborhood. Every morning my students enter our classroom with a lot of energy and an appetite for learning. I can see their eyes quickly scan the room to see what exciting learning opportunities await.

I teach at one of the most diverse schools in the country!

I absolutely love it! My students come from a variety of socioeconomic backgrounds, but they all love to learn and experience new things. As their teacher, it is my goal to motivate my students and teach the whole child.

All of my kindergartners come from a wide range of backgrounds, languages, and academic abilities. Many of them come from families living in poverty and face many challenges. They come to school every day excited to learn. They are a great group of kids who love school and love learning!

My Project

As a teacher, I engage in professional development daily. The most convenient form of professional development for me is online. Every evening, I am listening to educational webinars, podcasts, audiobooks, and Facebook live videos. All of these forms of teacher professional development require reliable, comfortable, wireless headphones. The Apple AirPods Pro will allow me to engage in amazing professional development from the comfort of my home. They will also allow me to be mobile and multi-task as I engage in professional development.

Every day, I am learning new strategies and gaining ideas on how to be a better teacher.

I want to be the best teacher for my students. The AirPods will be a tool that will definitely enhance my professional development as a teacher. This valuable tool will allow me to continue my journey as a lifelong learner in the field of education. Please help me become a better teacher.
