My Students

I teach in a K-5 Resource/Behavioral Classroom. There are currently 40 students being served in our classroom. Each student has an individualized program focusing on academic and behavioral needs. The staff works to create an inviting classroom that stresses a strong sense of community where students learn safety, responsibility and respect. Many of the children are homeless or come from highly mobile families, so it is imperative that we make the most of our time with them. We are working to create an atmosphere of both support and challenge each day.

Engaged, determined, energetic; my students are eager to learn and be successful.

They love to practice their skills in a variety of modalities, playing games, using manipulatives and using repetition in order to learn to mastery. It is our goal to help each of them be prepared to enter the world ready to take on any challenge.

My Project

The purchase of these heavy duty kid-sized headphones is to minimize sensory distractions and maximize time learning vital content. Many of my students experience sensory issues, including difficulty with regulating auditory distractions. In our technology rich environment, having quality headphones will both enable my students to hear clearly, as well as cut down on the background noise that might distract their learning. I want to give my students as much possible scaffolding as I can.

Along with blocking out background sounds, these headphones do not cause sensitivity issues with the pressure that other types of headphones can cause for my diverse population.
