My Students

My students come from an urban school district that does not have the resources to provide materials that will fully engage them in class. My school serves a majority of low-income students who all receive free lunch. The students that I teach enjoy using technology but often do not have access to it.

My students are determined to succeed but they do not always have access to resources that will help them get there.

Students come to school eager to learn and I want to make sure they continue asking questions, being engaged and interested in what they are studying.

My Project

I am requesting a set of headphones that my students will be able to use in the classroom. My students have access to Chromebooks which allow them to use the internet in class. Much of the work they do online has an audio component that they cannot access without headphones. Students use the Chromebooks to research and learn more about specific topics through videos, digital books, and other programs.

Having headphones accessible to my students will allow them all to better utilize this material.

They will aid students with their assignments and help them stay engaged in their work. All of my students work at a different level and having headphones to assist with reading and provide greater insight will allow them all to be more successful.
