Mrs. Azar from Miami FL is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Headphones Please!!

My students need a class set of headphones for the computer lab. The current headphones in the lab are in poor condition. They are either without the cushion, or are bent and are painful to wear.

My Students

A safe-haven, an emotional refuge, a place of hope. This is what our classroom is for my 2nd and 3rd grade SPED students. My students range from having learning disabilities which makes learning the traditional way very difficult, to Autism which requires a new approach to learning. My students come to school with hopes of learning to read and write. Although they have many obstacles, in class, they feel like they are important and that they need to learn to believe in themselves. Like Dr. Seuss said, "Every child can learn, just not at the same time or in the same way". Many of them lack the educational support at home because many parents do not speak the English language. Although we are located in the famous Miami, 95% of our school is on free and reduced lunch and 99% of students live in a home where English is a second language and where parents cannot help students as much as they would like because of the language barrier and lack of time due to multiple low wage jobs. But thankfully, as teachers and donors, we can all make a difference!

My Project

Our computer at school has headphones that are not in their best shape at the moment. Sadly, these are not old headphones, but since all the classes use the lab, it's difficult to hold any particular person or class accountable for the maintenance and care of the headphones. When we get to the computer lab, the students begin complaining that the headphones have one ear cushion missing, or both ear cushions missing. This is obviously very uncomfortable, and make them unusable. Also, some of the headphones are bent and when worn, become very tight over the ears and head. To ensure the most productive time at the computer lab, I would put them each into an individual ziploc bag to prevent them from getting tangled with one another and have the students use these headphones when they come to the lab. This would relieve the stress of coming here, especially since we come every week for one hour or reading and one hour of math. It can get a little chaotic, just trying to find a decent headphone for all 25 students.

Having these headphones would ensure a smoother transition in the computer lab, where students are not worried about having an uncomfortable headphone, and where they can simply have an enjoyable and productive learning experience in the computer lab!
