This year is my 23rd year in education. It is a blessing to spend my days at this beautiful community school in the spectacular mountains of western North Carolina. My drive to work is full of beautiful landscapes. My school is pre-kindergarten through fifth grade, with around 550 students.
We are an A+ Arts Integration School where the arts are seamlessly infused in teaching and learning.
The community is deeply invested in the education and nurturing of each student. Economic status does not provide a barrier to learning; instead, it provides a challenge this school accepts on a daily basis. With your help, we can give these deserving students everything they need!
This year, we are using a new literacy testing platform. Students in kindergarten through third grade will read passages out loud and the computer will record their reading. Then teachers listen and score the readings at a different time.
To help this transition move smoothly, we are requesting 10 sets of headphones with microphones.
Although the standard microphone on a computer will work, headphones will help cancel out distracting noises and the attached microphone will capture their true reading without any background noise.
Change is never easy but is a constant. These headphones with microphones will help make this transition easier and give our students the opportunity to show off their reading skills!
