Headphones for Quiet and Focused Learning

My students need headphones so they can work on independent projects at the same time as others without distractions.

My Students

Our school is over 90 years old with a rich history of character education. It is tucked into a town that prioritizes families and is surrounded by corn fields.

My students are AMAZING!

Even though every day brings its challenges, each student is creative and curious about the world around him/her. This group of rambunctious learners ranges from backgrounds that have provided wonderful life experiences to experiences that don't stretch beyond the city limits. They are very special individuals that deserve great things.

My Project

Headphones are an important tool in today's technology enriched classroom allowing several students to work on individualized learning at the same time as their peers. They provide a quiet yet focused environment for learning. Without the proper supply of headphones, using technology can no longer be differentiated to each student because it becomes too loud and then students become distracted and cannot focus.

Your help will provide students access to quality headphones for quiet and focused learning.

Even though headphones are posted on the school supplies list at the beginning of the school year, some students come without them. Also, some students come with earbuds that are uncomfortable for little ears and break easily. Your support will be greatly appreciated and help students that walk through my classroom door for years to come.
