I am the lucky teacher of 120 very enthusiastic middle school students in a low income community. My students have an array of abilities and interests. I had the honor of teaching many of these students in prior years. This gives me an advantage that I am looking forward to cultivating.
My school strives to provide an academic program in a caring and supportive learning environment emphasizing Literacy, Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics tailored to meet the needs of our students.
Since I set high expectations for my students, the lack of ear buds has been a hindrance. When completing assignments on the Chromebook, students must turn their volume down to avoid distracting others. However, this becomes a challenge because it keeps the student(s) using the Chromebook, from hearing the directions and or assignments – it stifles learning.
With earbuds, my students will not have to worry about disrupting learning of other students.
Both, the students using the Chromebooks and their classmates can remain focused on their given assignments which will lead to better comprehension. Students will be actively engaged and on task.
