My Students

I work with a great bunch of kids. I know all children can learn and deserve to have the best possible experience. I work in a Title I school, and the majority of students are living in poverty. All of our students receive free breakfast and lunch.

I want all children to love school and continue on a great path of learning.

I know that as a second-grade teacher I can help the students to continue to have positive experiences at school. I know when they come to class and feel they are welcomed and respected they can learn and be successful in whatever they put their mind to.

My Project

The students in my class come from low income homes. Many students were unable to buy the materials asked of them on the supply list, and one of those items was headphones. The headphones are important as they give the students the opportunity to get a Chromebook when they need they need that extra support in reading books.

The Headphones will help each child have access to hearing books, and online assessments.

Right now several have headphones and they are kind and share with their classmates. I know that it will be easier for each student to have their own pair of headphones to use so they can have access anytime they need to the chrome books.
