My Students

My students vary greatly in their ability levels. Many of them are English Language Learners. More than 90% of my students receive free or reduced price lunch. My students attend a school in one of New Jersey’s most diverse school districts. The teacher's in our school are committed to fostering high expectations, promoting positive attitudes and to achieving equity and excellence in a safe and nurturing environment. But, like many schools our budget has been cut and we are in need of many supplies to provide for our students.

My Project

The classroom can be a noisy place on any day with the exchanging of ideas between teacher and students. Sometimes these distractions make it difficult to concentrate. Headphones help keep all students on the same level and encourages students to pay attention and interact because they can hear every word.

Headphones help the student focus on their assignments and not another student's assignment.

Headphones at the computer helps keep the noise level at a minimum while keeping learning at a maximum. Headphones at the media players, or listening centers encourage students to interact with audio programs at their own pace without disturbing others.
