My Students

I teach a wonderful group of 3rd graders on the west side of Indianapolis. My classroom is rich with diverse learners. My students are energetic, kind, and resilient. Despite challenging home lives, my students come to school eager to learn every day.

All of our students receive free breakfast and lunch.

Many of our students' parents work odd hours to provide for their children. However, no matter what is going on at home, they always do their best when they come to school.

My Project

My students need their own pair of headphones. The students in my class currently share headphones. When they do this, they run the risk or sharing germs and head lice. Head lice is very common at my school and I want to do everything I can to give my students rich educational opportunities knowing that they are staying healthy. These headphones are also compatible with my Deaf and Hard of Hearing students' hearing aids, so they will allow all students to be successful. Overall, headphones for each of my students will improve the health and hygiene of my students and keep them in school!
