My Students

Our students come from a variety of different economic backgrounds with over seventy-seven percent of our students receiving free lunch. Our students speak a multitude of languages. As diverse as our students are economically and culturally, they are also diverse in their academics as well.

My students are an enthusiastic, eager group of third grade students who come from very diverse and economically disadvantaged backgrounds.

Our school is a Title One school. My students are excited about learning and want to do well. Our class includes gifted learners, English language learners and students with academic disabilities.

My Project

My students need headphones that are durable and sturdy to wear in the classroom. Headphones with strong cords and that are noise cancelling, help students focus and target their skills that they are working on. Students work differently and by meeting needs of working independently and removing distractions help students focus.

Having a set of working headphones that can withstand student standards is important in many of our school programs.

Students need headphones to access state testing, district testing and progress monitoring assessments. They also use headphones when working with coding and robotics. Having a set of. headphones that can stand up to student use would be beneficial too.
