My Students

My students this year are different then any other year. They are thinkers, debaters, and risk takers and they are only in the first grade! They challenge me to be a better teacher because of the profound thoughts that they have.

I teach at low-income school so many of my students do not have the resources that other children have.

They make up for it though, with their persistence and grit. They work hard everyday and they embrace each learning experience with enthusiasm and excitement. I am proud to be their teacher because each student shows their individual gifts each day.

My Project

My first graders learn in many ways in our classroom. One way that I am able to meet their needs is through books being read to them, researching on different topics, and practicing math on computer. This is a highly engaging way for the students to increase their knowledge in many different areas. However, the students struggle daily with using the computer because they cannot hear their individual computer. We do much of this work during station time so they have to keep the volume turned down low so they don't disturb their classmates. This is where this donorschoose.com comes in. I am requesting headphones so that the students will be able to hear their computers. This will greatly enhance the students' ability to gather information and learn.
