My Students

Second graders are the best! This is my 22nd year of teaching and I have been able to teach amazing second graders throughout my career. My students are full of excitement for learning. Even in remote learning, they are eager and have a hunger to learn.

Second graders are willing to try new things, be creative, and share their love to learn.

It is my job to foster that passion. Each student is a gift that is unique and special.

My Project

The noise canceling headphones will be used daily to help the students when they are working on their computers. Headphones are asked for on our student supply list but not all students can afford to bring in a pair to keep at school. This project will provide good quality headphones for all my students to utilize.

The students can also use these when working independently and wanting to have a quieter environment to focus in.

All students will have the tools they need for success in our classroom. These headphones will benefit students for many years.
