My Students

My students come from diverse cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds. My classroom is the true definition of a melting pot. Students grow, learn, and interact daily with people they may not have engaged with outside of the classroom. The students and parents come from various parts of the world, yet we all have one common goal and that is the development of my students. We have a wonderful parent community and my students are dedicated to putting their best foot forward everyday!

My Project

The matrials requested for thins project seems small, but will make a world of a difference in the classroom! The headphones will tune out the distractions in the classroom while students are engaged in reading and math lessons on the computers and iPads. These materials will improve my students learning because it will allow them to focus on their lesson and not be distracted by sounds in the classroom. The headphones will allow the students to not only tune out distractions, but also increase student opportunities for student learning because students will be able to properly hear information provided in each lesson.
