My Students

Our public school in Oakland, California is becoming more technologically savvy! We are working to provide headphones for every student in each class.

I am excited to provide technology opportunities for all of my students!

My students come from a variety of backgrounds and cultures. Many of our students are first or second generation immigrants and do not have access to standard school supplies and I want to make school somewhere they love to be. Please help create a powerful and welcoming learning environment for my new students!

My Project

As of now, all of 3rd grade shares 20 pairs of headphones for 120 students. It is important and essential for instruction that each of our students has their own pair of headphones. Technology is an important part of our 21st century classrooms. All students deserve to have the materials accessible to them in order to use technology daily in the classroom.

Students use headphones for online reading instruction and online testing on a daily basis.

We use these materials daily in our instruction, especially for our emerging learners. Please help us gain equal access to technology in our classroom.
