My Students

We are a very rural school located in Southern Oregon. Our school is a K-5 elementary school with a large playground and surrounding property that allows for many outdoor activities. It is not unusual to see turkey and deer on the playground, along with goats, lizards, and sometimes the neighbor's horse.

At our school we are faced with a high poverty population.

Our students are dependent upon finding a safe and secure environment here in which they are able to learn. This is often the main place in which they feel at home.

We make it a priority to ensure that our students are provided with the essentials they need to be successful.

Meeting their mental, physical, emotional, social and academic needs is a constant concern and focus for our staff. We have limited resources by which to accomplish these important goals.

My Project

This year we have started blending learning on Chromebooks. The programs are interactive and have sound. Headphones are a must for listening to the audio sections of the activities. It is challenging to hear the directions and the teaching when the headphones are not working properly. Students miss out on the content when the volume is low. For the rest of the students that are participating in a different activity than digital learning, it can be distracting for them to have ten different noises going on around them.

Headphones will reduce the noise in the classroom and allow all students to concentrate.

We are looking for some quality materials that will allow us to continue to use technology for learning.
