My Students

I have the privilege this year of educating the minds of 25 Kindergartners. Twenty-five Kindergartners who are eager to learn, excited about reading, mastering language arts, pumped about math, and so enthusiastic about the arts. However, they have come into Kindergarten in the midst of horrible budget cuts, that provide a small milestone in achieving these goals.

These passionate group of kindergarten graders, reside on the Southside of Chicago.

They have the privilege of learning in an environment that believes in personalized learning, flexible seating, and the power of technology. The students are of both African American and Hispanic descent with 99% of our students receive free or reduced lunch. However, they are learning that believing in themselves is all that matters.

My Project

In my Kindergarten classroom of 27, we believe in personalizing the learning experience for each student. We are able to accomplish this in a variety of ways, one way being a reading and math, interactive and very engaging program. These programs have been proven to be very effective, however, there is one thing hindering my students utmost success, headphones.

Twenty seven students with blaring computers, make it difficult to be successful and completely focused on their individual learning paths.

Providing headphones for the students will ensure that they can concentrate and remain engaged on each of the task presented to them.
