My Students

Our class is composed of 20 playful, curious, beautifully sarcastic fifth graders in New Bedford, MA who have a love of science, good books, and visiting their kindergarten buddies. One of my biggest goals is to find ways to get them to love learning and care about what they learn. This takes many forms, from building our own mechanical arms to finding class books that make them beg for just one more page before dismissal. Working toward an engaged, excited attitude in each student is my huge focus to help them be their best selves.

My Project

Technology has an evolving presence in classrooms nationwide, and this is true for my own class as well. With the addition of headphones, we'll be better able to utilize our school's Chromebooks for different educational content like watching math videos and interactive vocabulary games. Headphones are also a great way to optimize the physical learning environment for students with different needs and preferences.

The goal is to give students the environment they need to focus.

We take it for granted that some of our colleagues like to work without noise or listen to soft music. Students are the same way--they all have different preferences and need options so that they can do their best work. Kids can wear them to block out noise and create silence, or kids who want music can play something softly while others enjoy the silence.
