I teach a diverse group of amazing students who have a lot of personality and make sure that no two days are the same. They come from many different backgrounds but come together for the same purpose, to learn and explore. I teach three different sections and each section has a unique class dynamic. Although 5th grade can be challenging at times, these students definitely make it worth it and it is clear to me that I'm where I'm meant to be.
We utilize a lot of online resources in our classrooms and most of these resources use sound. It has been difficult to fully utilize these resources without headphones because we end up with a room full of laptops trying to make noise over each other. This causes a lot of distraction and difficulty for our students and I truly believe that these headphones will help significantly reduce distraction and increase learning possibilities. These headphones will also be a good opportunity for the students to learn about responsibility because they will be in charge of storing and maintaining their own pair of headphones.
