Mrs. Turner from Homestead FL is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

If We Can Hear, We Can Perform!

My students need headphones for their computer-based programs and tests. These SONY headphones will secure a good sound and comfort while they are testing and working on their required computer-based programs.

My Students

I have the awesome task of inspiring, engaging and instructing 7th grade students who attend a Title I, K-8 Academy. I am a Language Arts teacher and it is my job to excite students about writing and reading. This is no easy task, over 50% of my students are below grade level in reading and do not have an interest in literature. I have students in my class who are homeless, who have lost parents through violent acts, students who have been displaced because of incarcerated parents, as well as 80% who are eligible for the free and /or reduced price lunch program.

Every child deserves the opportunity to learn.

Learning is most effective when the right tools are available for the child. If every student has the same opportunity to succeed then the excuses of failure do not become an option.

My Project

My students test several times a year as well as complete numerous computer based programs in class. The headphones that are available in our school are not the best. Many of them have the cushion around the ear torn off, often times the cords have "shorts" in them and the sounds are distorted. SONY headphones will provide the students the comforts of learning as well as quality sound. My students use headphones a minimum of 30 minutes per class period and it has become very uncomfortable for them. New headphones will give them a greater chance at success in school.
