My Students

My students are from a small, rural town in West Virginia. Our elementary school strives to be a school of excellence, offering a welcoming and engaging learning environment for all students through meaningful lessons, hands-on activities, community involvement, and quality instruction.

Most students at our school are from a low socioeconomic background.

All of the students at our school receive free breakfast and lunch. My students' ability levels range from above average to below average, and everything in between. They are scientists, authors, readers, mathematicians, and explorers with a great desire to learn.

My Project

We are using technology more and more in the classroom. Unfortunately, our technology isn’t always the best quality, and we don’t have enough for one-to-one access. We are requesting headphones to use with our desktops, laptops, and iPads.

At our school, we implement several online lessons and activities in the different subject areas, from whole group lessons to small group lessons and individual activities.

Most of the time, headphones are required for student use during these activities and lessons, in addition to being required for testing throughout the school year and the end of the year state test. This has become a major issue. We don’t have enough working headphones for all students. Most of ours have broken or don’t work, so I have to borrow headphones from other teachers in the building. This is also a problem, because they need headphones for their own students. It’s so frustrating to not have access to needed materials for my students to complete these online lessons and activities. Having a new, nice class set of headphones would help my students out tremendously!
