My Students

I teach at a school that is Title I and seventy percent of the students qualify for free or reduced-price lunch. This project will benefit so many students. We have some really great and eager kids at our school who want to be immersed in learning. I have students from so many backgrounds including SLD, ADHD, and speech impairment.

Students learn best with activities they enjoy.

I want to bring more excitement to learning for my students. I want them to build confidence in themselves and be the best they could be so they all have a bright future ahead.

My Project

My students just received new earbuds but currently do not have a place to store them. With these bags they will have a durable storage bag to keep their earbuds in. The bags will also help keep their earbuds clean. Also, they can easily store these bags with their earbuds in them in their chair pockets so they are also easily accessible to the students.

Organized learners are better learners!

We are also requesting a permanent marker so we can write the students names on the bags so we know which bag belongs to who in case a student misplaces their bag.
