My Students

My students are energetic, eager to learn, and fun-loving. Despite some tough situations some of my students face at home, they come in every day really giving it their all. Our school is 100% free breakfast and lunch. Coming from an urban district and a Title I school, unfortunately my students do not have as many supplies and opportunities as the surrounding districts.

"The need for imagination, as a sense of truth, and as a feeling of responsibility — these are the three forces which are the very nerve of education." - Rudolf Steiner

For this reason, I work extra hard to raise money for supplies that will be used by my students. These supplies benefit my students in so many ways, and it also teaches them a deeper lesson of how good the world can be. Over the years when I have told my students that we have gotten a project funded and we were getting supplies, the looks on their faces were priceless. My students are so appreciative, and donations from kind-hearted people really impact their lives in such a major way!

My Project

My students will use these headphones while using the computers, and tablets we have in the classroom. We have so many great programs in our district such as iReady, Lexia and Wonders but without headphones to hear, it can be hard for the students to focus. The only headphones we currently have in the class are one I have purchased from the dollar store so unfortunately they do not hold up very well when being used daily. These headphones will replace some of the headphones that have broken.

Quality headphones help students focus better and improve their work.

It is hard to find good quality headphones that will last long in little hands. These headphones have good reviews. My students will love the colors and quality of these new headphones. These headphones will help improve all my classroom environment and my students' work by helping them improve their focus on the task they are working on. Thank you!
