My Students

My students are full of life and eager to learn each day. They are excited for what is in store for them every day. We encourage each other to be the best we can be and build the belief that each child can learn and will learn.

I teach many students who are learning English as a second language.

Many of my students come from low-income homes, but they are motivated to do well in school, and they enjoy learning!

They make me want to do my absolute best every day.

They are eager to share their thoughts, ideas and life experiences. Every new concept taught sparks a flood of new thinking.

Our school is aiming to have 100% of our students college and career ready. We are a Leader in Me School, and practice regularly setting goals and assessing progress towards those goals.

We want to help them see that they can make something of themselves and become hard workers in the community.

My Project

My students need new high quality computer headphones to use daily. Our school utilizes reading and math computer programs as part of our core curriculum. Reading programs allow them to listen to reading passages at their level, as well as participate in phonics programs. Math computer programs will read the question to them, develop higher level thinking skills, as well as provide conceptual practice.

My students need new headphones so they can focus on their computer work this next school year.

I would like to be able to provide our students with quality headphones that will last more than one school year.

Because students work independently on the computer daily, headphones are provided. Unfortunately, most of them end up being broken within the first couple of months of school. Working headphones allow them to concentrate on their tasks with limited distractions. This helps to create a quieter environment for all to learn and succeed, whether on the computer or in small group with the teacher.

 

By providing my class with new, quality sets of headphones, my students will be able to maximize their use of computer and independent work time. It will also help reduce the anxiety my students may begin to feel when their headphones are not working.

There are so many great educational apps that we will be able to use. Since my students are still learning English, having headphones will help them hear the language and better develop their language skills. By donating to our project, you will not only help to improve and increase student attention and focus, you will ultimately help to increase their academic achievement.
