My Students

I currently teach science classes at a program for students who are behind in their class work​ but are trying to finish high school. I also teach science students for our district's virtual school program. My students come from six high schools in our county to work at these programs housed at our county career technical school. My students are motivated to finish school and often just need that extra push and some encouragement to finish their coursework to obtain their high school diploma.

My students are very respectful and just need some encouragement and help to be able to finish high school.

Our programs help them to be able to finish their diploma work, get career technical skills for some students, and then go on to either college, enlist in the military, or seek employment in their chosen career path.

My Project

My students utilize online learning platforms to access the instructional materials for their classes. This requires students to log in to an online platform and then watch and listen to the educational materials. When there are multiple students in a classroom doing this, headphones are required, so that everyone can hear their individual lessons for the day. These requested headphones would allow my students to listen privately to their own class instruction and not disturb anyone else around them in the classroom.

These requested headphones would be a welcome addition to my classroom to help my students be able to listen better to their instructional materials.
