My Students

I teach fourth grade math and science in an urban school in Philadelphia to 45 scholars. Almost 100% of our kiddos get lunch assistance and deal with trauma on a daily basis that most of us will never understand. Despite their situations, the students are hard working, thoughtful and kind, and strive to be the best they can.

When I tell you these kiddos deserve everything and more, I truly mean it!

Last school year, I had the privilege of interacting with the third grade students (my incoming fourth graders) and I am beyond excited to get to know them better, grow with them, learn and teach with them. The past two classes I have taught at this school have opened my eyes and mind so much that they have inspired me to be a foster parent.

My Project

I'm asking for help to buy a classroom pack of headphones so all our scholars will be able to be on the math and/or science programs at the same time. I teach roughly 25 students at once and in the past two years I have only been provided with five pairs of headphones, though I shouldn't complain because many teachers aren't given any headphones!

My students have LOTS of personality and energy, which is great for many learning environments and projects, but when it comes to their independent online programs, scholars need privacy to focus.

Fourth graders are social and want to talk as much as possible and the online programs require sound. Headphones would increase students' participation by keeping them focused and not distracted.
