Mrs. DiZio from Manchester NH is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Handy Headphones

My students need their own set of headphones so they can work at their own pace and be successful, without having to worry about sharing with another student or having the volume on and distracting others.

My Students

I teach wonderful 4th graders in a large Title 1 school of over 700 students! Our school is one of 14 elementary schools in the largest school district in New Hampshire. Our students come from a variety of economic and ethnic backgrounds. Having quality, interesting and appropriate materials for student use is a constant quest, as is money for resources.

We share a love of learning and a strong community.

My students enter the classroom each morning with positivity, hope, and an eagerness to learn. Each day, they work hard to understand new math and reading concepts. Their joy when they master a focus area is overwhelming and encouraging.

My Project

My students use the computers several times throughout the day for individualized instruction. Most of the headphones we have are old and hardly work, so students are forced to share headphones with others, or not use headphones at all. This often becomes a distraction for the entire class. Allowing each student to have their own set of headphones would be helpful for all student learning and it would minimize distractions. Having working headphones will also help eliminate the loss of teaching time, as many times throughout the day I am having to stop a lesson with others to help with headphones that are not working properly.
