My Students

I have a classroom full of enthusiastic learners! We love to move and work together to complete our tasks each day.

My students are fun-loving and passionate learners.

For many of my kids, school is their one constant and place of security. We love to actively learn all day long. We work together to grow every day. We are a community of learners!

About 50% of my students receive free or reduced-price lunch. We live in a rural community in Western Colorado. I hope to be able to further expose them to the world of learning.

My Project

My students use Chromebooks and iPads throughout our day to enhance our learning. We would be able to better utilize this technology with a class set of headphones for privacy.

We listen to stories and practice our comprehension to make us better readers.

Our fluency has improved by using math programs to practice our facts. Using Chromebooks for spelling games has improved our writing. We also have used technology to take virtual field trips across the country, exploring different places.

All of these things would be greatly improved if we had a class set of durable, comfortable headphones. Please consider helping us reach our goal!
