My Students

I am the blessed teacher to an awesome bunch of three dozen fifth graders. One thing I love about teaching fifth grade is that I get the opportunity to make their last year of elementary school one to remember. I teach at one of the best schools in Las Vegas! It is located in a high-needs neighborhood, but that is what makes my job so rewarding. The atmosphere at my school is so positive and exciting, which makes our students truly love coming to school.

Everyone who has come into my classroom has commented on how much they notice my students enjoy learning.

Each group of fifth graders that I have had so far has stood out to me for different reasons. I have grown a special bond with all six of the classes that I have had, and at the end of each year my students might leave but they stay in my heart forever. This year, the majority of my students come from low-income households. While my students may face many obstacles in their home lives, they do not let that stop them from wanting to learn more and become successful.

My Project

During distance learning supply and material deployment, one thing I dispursed to my students were headphones. Unfortunately, only 6 of 38 headphones made it back to my classroom at the end of the 2020-2021 school year.

Imagine the sound as you are sitting in a classroom with 35 other students, and each of you are playing the sound on your Chromebooks simultaneously.

It makes it nearly impossible for a student to truly concentrate. Headphones are essential to students to support them with blended learning. Many of our lessons and instructional programs involve students watching video and listening to audio recordings.
