My Students

My students are in a wide range of ages and abilities. Every student is gifted but finding out what they are gifted in can be difficult. Being the school Media Specialist, I see and work with all the students in the building.

Our community is a small, rural area next to a large expanding county.

This can make it hard sometimes for our economically challenged students. My students are hard workers, but they need more to work with and they need inspiration.

My Project

Headphones are needed to help students to learn with our online programs that are a part of our curriculum. We have students that have problems with chewing the cords on headphones and they don't have any. Also, I am slowly expanding our Robotics program and this will allow me to add a second Dash robot.

Our students need durable headphones to help learn with our online programs.

Research has shown that chewing can be caused by stress, the jaw motion relieves it, or teething pains, 6 year olds are teething. Having durable headphones with cord protectors, it is hoped that it will solve the problem of students no having any headphones.
