My Students

"Try your best!" is a phrase heard everyday in the classrooms. Yet, how can we ask for students to try their best when we are not supplying them with the correct resources?

My students walk into my classroom knowing they will be safe, welcomed and gain knowledge throughout the day.

Yet, our campus was struck with budget cuts. Try to make the best of what you've got, right? But when we are asking students to try their best without their complete senses, we can not do them justice. My students are English Language Learners who are giving it their all to learn proper English but we are not being much help when they can not hear the programs provided.

My Project

My students will be able to use the headphones in many ways. They will be able to use a language acquisition program which targets all areas: comprehension, grammar, fluency, even letter names and sounds. This program helps them with videos, sounds, and repetition for them to learn English correctly. They will also be able to print their writings, create proper labels and finish their projects with the ink.

My students lives will change tremendously.

They will be able to learn English correctly and they will be able to apply those skills when they type and create their own work. Language acquisition is needed for students to be successful in life. Research has shown that a person who is fluently bilingual is bound to be successful.
