My Students

I teach First Grade in a very small farming community in rural Arizona. Our small K-8 school has around 250 students. Most of our kids are low income and qualify for free or reduced lunches. But, although we are small, we are mighty!

My first graders are awesome!

They are curious about everything, want to learn, and are excited to come to school. They make me smile every morning as they "bounce" through the door and excitedly share their "important news."

Besides our "big job" in first grade of learning how to read and write, we also learn about the agriculture and animal husbandry in our area. We plant vegetables in our school garden, visit our local dairy, sometimes help raise baby goats, and the all-time first-grade favorite - raise butterflies!

My Project

Picture this: You have finally, successfully logged 25 six-year-olds onto their computer programs, and are just beginning to think you might be able to take a breath when you hear the words that strike fear into all educators striving to be just a little tech-savvy,

"Teacher, I can't hear my computer!

As you begin to unplug and re-plug, jiggle wires, and get out the electrical tape, you realize that the cry has now become a chorus throughout the computer lab. You begin to wonder if the hour that you had reserved the lab for your class will be anywhere near enough time to accomplish anything.

This is the very real situation I face every week because of the faulty headphones we have in our lab. They are cheap and very easily broken. I need my own class set of quality headphones so that my students can be productive and I can save my sanity as I endeavor to incorporate technology into my curriculum.
