My Students

My scholars are the best. They are eager and willing to learn. They are creative, fun-loving, enjoy reading , math and exploring. They walk into the classroom with smiles on their faces looking forward to what the new day in the classroom will bring. My scholars decided how they wanted their classroom to feel, look, and sound by making up their classroom rules.

I work in a low-income school.

My scholars come from a vast, diverse community. Some come in knowing very little or no English. Have you ever been the new person somewhere or gone someplace where you didn't know anyone? Some of my scholars feel like that, getting adjusted to a new country, city, and or school.

Now they need the tools to succeed, to be all that they can be. This is why I am there, to provide them with the tools they need so they can always have that smile and sense of discovery.

My Project

These headphones will remove the struggle of having parents to supply headphones or earbuds for their scholar each year or me buying them each year. The quality of these Califone headphones is what is needed in the classroom. Plus they were made for students and therefore make them the ones needed in my class.

These headphones will enable all my scholars to concentrate on their technology studies, from learning reading and math to coding.

The noise level in the classroom will be lower enabling me to monitor everyone and help where needed. There is a place waiting for these headphones in my classroom.
