My Students

Why are my students special? My students are special because against all odds they do their best to make it to school everyday and to do their best. My classroom is a comfortable, safe, predictable, and positive space for my students. I have students who are at all different academic levels.

My classroom is filled with wonderful students who walk in every morning ready to learn, no matter what is going on in their home lives.

My students love to use technology in our classroom. Whether it is our Promethean board, laptops or chrome books. I offer them multiple opportunities throughout the day for them to use technology.

My Project

Our classroom has the access to technology, but unfortunately we don't have a class set of headphones for my students to use.

If we had access to more headphones, my students could be engaged and focused on their computer work.

We have a few pairs but they brake easily and have to be shared between 19 students. If this project is funded students could have their own set to use in our classroom.

The headphones I have requested are not just comfortable for my students who have sensory needs, but for everyone. With a class set of headphones, students can take responsibility in taking care of their own headphones.
