My Students

Our students are a diverse group of motivated, hard-working and passionate learners. Living in an urban neighborhood in Northwest Washington, DC, some of our students find themselves below grade level or struggling to learn English. However, we provide all the resources and support to help these students reach grade level expectations by the end of each school year, by teaching them to work through the curriculum at their own pace. At our school, we emphasize that education is journey and not a competition. Through personal devices for all students grades 3-8; free breakfast, lunch and snack every day; and an extended school day so there is time for mentorship and intervention, our students are equipped with the power to overcome any challenges and reach any and all of their personal goals.

My Project

Many of our students are English Language Learners and can sometimes be newcomers to our country. Our school district provides many online programs, such as Lexia, Myon and Imagine Learning, to help our students learn English and listen to books online in English.

Often times our current 10 pairs of headphones break or get so tangled that they are not useable.

With a whole set of new, comfortable headphones, we can help provide our students with the sounds they need to be successful on the computer, while others are gaining the silence they need while working off of the computer.
