My Students

Hello, everyone! I am a third grade teacher working for a high poverty school district located in rural mid-Missouri. Our small elementary school provides education to around 250 students.

My classroom usually consists of around eighteen bright and shining jewels!

These children each bring with them their own unique personalities and characteristics, helping to make our wacky classroom family complete. My students enjoy moving around, working with partners, interacting with technology, and learning through hands-on experiences. Hard work, enthusiasm, high fives, and smiles fill our classroom daily. These children truly deserve the best education possible!

My Project

This project will supply eight Samson headphones for digital learning centers. The students will use the headphones when completing online spelling and math fact practice. The headphones will enable the students to focus more on their assignments instead of what is going on in other parts of our room.

Furthermore, the headphones will also be used when students are working on our online reading and math program.

This program enables students to work at their own levels and pace. During this time of the day, it is typical to find my third graders working on standards that range anywhere from kindergarten through fourth grade. As a result, this program provides an excellent source of both intervention for struggling students and enrichment for overachieving students.

By donating to our project, you will be providing students with the resources they need to be successful and focused digital learners! Thank you for considering our project!
