Mr. Ridge from Tiffin OH is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Help Students Focus in Music Class

Help me give my students headphones for those kids that don't have them. This will give me a supply to be able to hand out to kids who are in need of headphones.

My Students

My seventh grade students are some of the most engaging and fun kids you will ever meet. They are eager to learn and even though my my music class is mandatory, they always give their best.

I teach at a junior high school of about 600 students, 60 percent of which are on free and reduced lunch plans.

Our school is in a rural area and money for fine arts classes is in short supply.

Even though my students face struggles in their daily lives they are hard working and kind kids who just want to be successful. They make coming to work so enjoyable. I literally can not wait to hear the insight they have during our classes and I take so much joy from their triumphs.

My Project

Students will be able to better concentrate during listening activities and group work if they have headphones so they can listen independently and not disrupt the remainder of the class. These headphones will provide me with a stock to hand out to students who do not have headphones. These will also help students work independently if our school needs to go virtual this year. Students will be able to work on their music activities without disrupting their families and loved ones. In these uncertain times, any way we can help students to learn and work independently will be greatly appreciated by all. Thank you for your consideration!
