My Students

My students this year are super great and absolutely love learning through interaction! I really like to teach using a lot of whole classroom interaction, along with collaborative peer interaction. My students come from many different backgrounds, all with different stories and needs. All of my students are incredibly unique and each of them brings so much to our class as a whole, making is a special place to be every single day.

I teach in a low socioeconomic area, where many of my students are on free/reduced meals and many of them come from struggling backgrounds.

Despite their daily challenges, they love coming to school everyday and they work so hard for me. We challenge ourselves everyday and push ourselves to continuously learn new things in all subjects as we work towards our goal of getting prepared for 2nd grade!

My Project

My students use iPads and computers both in the classroom as well as in the computer lab. The headphones that we currently use are not kid-size headphones. They are way too big for their littles heads and ears. They are also getting really old, some are broken, missing ear pads, etc.

My students need headphones that are the right size for them.

This classroom set of headphones would be used year after year with each class that I have. The headphones will help each student to focus on what they are doing instead of being distracted by hearing every other student's computer or iPad. My hope is to help make their learning easier.
