My Students

Technology is key to incorporate in to school. It is all around us, and there are many stimulating opportunities to enhance a student's learning experience. Unfortunately, without comfortable headphones, technology can quickly become a distraction for students.

Pushing students into taking risks in learning, incorporating technology can add another level of roadblocks if it is uncomfortable for the students.

The feeling of feeling safe and comfortable can start with a quality pair of headphones to fully concentrate on the task at hand. My goal is to set them up for continued success with a needed technology tool.

My students are special because they have a growth mindset for their learning, and I've been able to experience growth in them as they are maturing each day in middle school! It is very exciting!

My Project

Technology is a key part of multi-source curriculum in classrooms today. Creating an environment that is allow students to take academic risks can be a tricky balancing act. Through experience, students that have comfortable headphones can stay focused and take more risks in their academic learning.

Middle school students need to feel safe and comfortable in their learning environment.

In a technology age, headphones can play a key role in their learning environment for success.

I want to have comfortable headphones accessible to all students in my classroom.

Middle school can be an awkward time for students. Comfortability is key.
