Mrs. Snell from Richmond KY is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Helping Students Hear to Learn and Grow Individually!

Help me give my students headphones to assist their learning! While we use lots of class activities and hands-on work, we also need to work individually on technology at times and these headphones enable them to do so!

My Students

My kids are some of the hardest working, driven, caring students I have ever had the opportunity to work with even though many of them do not have the financial supports at home that others do. The kids push themselves and others, students and teachers, through collaborative learning and discussions.

When you think of the future of our country and world, I know that those future problem solvers are sitting in my classroom.

We push ourselves to learn more than math but also discuss the logical thinking skills and numerous possibilities that could exist.

My students work hard each and every single day to make themselves better, our classroom better, our community better, and to make the world a better place.

My Project

I like to think of my students learning logical thinking and problem-solving skills through math versus just learning math. We talk about problems in different ways and explore problems through class discussions and hands-on activities, yet there comes a time when students need to work on their own and learn at their own pace.

Technology, and the ability to hear the videos, insights, and thoughts of others, allows my students to individualize their learning and begin to understand math in a different way.

This allows students to grow in their understanding because they all come to me with different math backgrounds and anxieties and allows them to do so without fear of judgment from others.

By allowing my students the opportunity to enhance their learning with individualized lessons because of technology I am able to reach them in ways that I would not be able to by myself.
