My Students

I teach a K-2 ESE classroom working with students with special needs and have the best students in the world! Our K-8 school is a Title I school, with the majority of the students in the school receiving free or reduced breakfast and lunch daily.

Our school has roughly 700 students, and its diverse population includes a large number of students from military families and has the second highest number of ESE students with special needs in our district.

The high number of military families in the community cause a high transiency rate with families coming and leaving every couple years. The school is considered high poverty by the state and has some displaced students while others are homeless. Being Title I, it is imperative to provide a quality learning environment for each and every student in order to give them all equal opportunities to learn. Our students want to be the best they can be and more! I strive to help my students achieve this and provide them with the best opportunities to learn.

My Project

Headphones are needed to keep my students focused on the learning targets they are working on during technology centers. Many of my students have limited attention span and without headphones, the students in other centers will run to any type of played media in the classroom.

My students need quality headphones to allow them to listen to and access the curriculum through educational programs, using read-along books, and our listening station.

The headphones will receive daily use in multiple ways. We will use the headphones for our listening station, four will be shared and used on our iPads, and the remaining two will be stationed on our classroom computers.
