My Students

Who are kindergartners? They are dreamers, thinkers, talkers, and questioners. They are mini inspirations to themselves and others around them. They are budding ambassadors, travelers, scientists, entrepreneurs, teachers... They are our future!

My students walk into our classroom every day, full of life, ready to learn, and excited about what they will learn that day.

I want to be able to give them all that I can. I want them to know I believe in them and they can do anything. "I made this!" and "Look what I did!" are the words a teacher loves to hear.

Our school serves students in grades K-2 in a rural area with no industrial support. We strive to provide rigorous academics, fantastic teachers and a safe learning environment. Our goal is to prepare our students for success in the future.

My Project

Getting school aged children to listen is an art in itself and something many teachers find themselves struggling with. Their attention span is often short, which is why using the right tools and approach becomes essential. What better way to make students all ages listen, than to use high-quality school headphones? A pair of good headphones allows the student to fully focus, something that with time will enhance their study results and performance. Having a pair of headphones available, both in the classroom and in the computer lab, could give a young student that extra push they need in order to succeed.

The whole point of using headphones as a learning tool is for students to be able to focus on their own work and learning.

This way a lesson can continue as usual, even though one or several students are using their headphones. Peace in the classroom can be kept by each student having their own set of headphones. When students are using headphones nobody has to worry about disturbing a young learner in study mode.
