My Students

As a teacher in a rural, low-income/high poverty school district, my students needs are often not met outside of the classroom. With your help, I'd like to ensure that they feel like school is a place they can go, and count on their needs being met. Also, I'd like to be able to provide all the tools that they need to be the most successful learner they can be.

I am seeking your help to provide my students with the necessary tools to be successful in the 21st Century classroom.

My Project

My students currently have cheap earbuds that I purchased for them at a dollar store. They are often breaking, or aren't working properly. Even if they are working properly, they are not something other students will be able to use next year.

New headphones will be able to be used from year to year with each new group of students.

They will allow for my students to listen to their instruction more comfortably and clearly during their virtual learning lessons in math, language arts, and social studies. Comfortable, and well-working headphones will also help students engage in their lessons much easier.

Consequently, the students will be learning more while hearing better. Also, they will be accomplishing more tasks, introduced to more concepts, and gain a higher level of education.

Through the use of these headphones, hopefully they will help us in closing our achievement gap. I use these online learning programs to enhance my students' learning experiences through the use of technology as we move into a much more technological future.
