My Students

My students are energetic and eager to learn. For many of my students, English is their second language. Other students come from poverty. Regardless of their backgrounds, my students all have the same drive to be successful in school. They want to learn as much as they can and as their teacher, I want to ensure that they are realizing their maximum learning potential. For our students, school is a place of excitement where the kids look forward to coming every day. It is a safe environment for them, where they feel comfortable taking risks in their learning.

We strive for excellence and achieve greatness.

Our school is a place of kindness, understanding, teamwork, and encouragement. We set high expectations and work hard to meet our goals. Please help our students reach their full potential!

My Project

My students need headphones so they can complete a variety of test preparation activities without getting distracted by the sound coming out of the 25 other Chromebooks around the room. Headphones will allow us to listen to only what is going on each individual computer. It is very hard to focus when our neighbors do not have headphones and we can hear so many different things going on.

We want to be able to be successful on our Chromebooks without being distracted.

Please help us ACE our assignments and tests without being distracted. Technology is our future and we are teaching students how to use computers, but we can only do this successfully with all of the tools they need. Headphones are the last piece of the puzzle we need to set our students up for success.

Headphones will keep us focused on our individual work and give us the tools we need to work hard!
