We have military families, special education students, gifted and talented students, English Language Learners, and students from a variety of cultures and religions. My students need every advantage they can to succeed. They thrive on interaction and success. They must have access to state of the art knowledge to prepare them for the careers of tomorrow. One of the great things about having so many diverse students is the unique perspectives they bring to our conversations. Our school community is comprised of students with knowledge of over 20 different languages, students who have lived outside of the US, students who have challenges we cannot imagine, and students who refuse to give up
Currently, there are student computers in my classroom, however, many of our students are on various different levels of learning and need the ability to move at their own pace. I would love for my students to have easy access to audio that is on the computers, however, we do not have access to headphones. Having netbooks for each child in the classroom can open up the real possibility of providing individual learning opportunities, but without headphones, students aren't able to truly take advantage of these opportunities because of the noise creates an environment that makes it difficult to concentrate on what the student should be focused on.
