My Students

This fall, I will start my fourth year teaching first grade at my school and my sixth year as a teacher. I love my school and my students, and I feel so lucky to teach at here. The students at my school are some of the most precious, spirited children I've ever met, and I feel so lucky to interact with them each day.

However, the majority of my students are living in extreme poverty.

100% of the students at my school receive free breakfast, lunch, and snacks daily. For many of my students, school is the place that opens up their eyes to the world. Despite the barriers they face outside of school, my students deserve the world. My goal as a teacher is to do everything I can to make my classroom engaging, developmentally-appropriate, and fun. I want my students to love coming to school every day and to feel engaged with their learning.

My Project

This summer, I received 6 Kindle Fire tablets from a DonorsChoose.org project. I am so thankful for these tablets, and my students love engaging with them; however, I am struggling to find quality headphones that will allow my students to get the most out of our tablets.

My students have the technology they need for a quality listening center, however we are missing headphones!

These headphones will allow my students to fully engage with their tablets and turn these tablets into a high-quality listening center! I know that these headphones will enable me to use my tablets as a listening center for years to come.
