My Students

Our school is located in a high poverty area. All of my students come from low income families and receive free breakfast and lunch. My classroom is made up of a very diverse group of students. They come from all different backgrounds and cultures. They also have very diverse abilities, skills, and strengths.

My students are a fun-loving, hardworking group of students who are eager to please, learn and be successful.

I push my students to not only do the best work they can do, but to be the best people they can be, as well.

My Project

My students recently received tablets for our classroom which are an amazing educational tool. Unfortunately, we did not receive any headphones to go along with them. Because all of my students come from low income homes, headphones are not materials we can ask families to provide.

My students need headphones in order to listen to books and watch instructional videos.

Students can also take quizzes, tests and district assessments through the tablets. Without headphones students get distracted, off-task and can not complete assignments independently.

When tablets are used efficiently and effectively they have been proven to increase students' engagement and academic performance.

Please consider donating to this project which will allow my students access to the materials they so greatly need and deserve! Thank you!
