My Students

I teach and work at a school where most students are low income and receive free breakfast and lunch. I work hard to make sure I provide amazing opportunities and use engaging items to bring my students together as a classroom community. I hope to raise funds for some special items in our classroom. While teaching virtually, I want to give my students a quiet place to do their work as if they are actually in the classroom setting. It is extremely important, especially in a class where I have 37 students. There are times we all need a quiet place to work. While teaching virtually, students raise their hands to share, and many students work in areas where it is extremely loud, and they can’t learn in that type of environment. Some students really need this more than others, but all students will benefit. Please assist me in making their environment a quiet area where they can learn as if they are in the school building.

My Project

By donating to our project, you will not only help to improve and increase student attention and focus, but you will also ultimately help to increase student academic achievement.

Having headphones, students will be able to focus more on the academic material at hand, and not be distracted by what is happening in the environment around them.

In addition, students will also be able to pay attention to whether their materials are working or not, and we will all be able to hear one another without outside distractions. Plus in this technology literate world, any interaction with updated technology will increase student literacy as well as their desire to learn and use this technology!
