My Students

I teach over 100 seventh grade students between four ELA blocks and one history class. Many of my classes are supported with either a special education teacher or another support staff member. I have students of all levels and diverse backgrounds. Students of all abilities and backgrounds benefit from options to show mastery of topics within the classroom. Not all students learn the same way and many will benefit from having choice!

This project will allow me to provide students with needed materials!

My students are my "why" and I learn from them everyday!

My Project

This year our district went 1:1 in grades 5-8. This means students were provided with a Chromebook to use for school purposes! Often students are asked to listen to or view online resources. Not all students in my five classes (4 English Language Arts and 1 Social Studies) have headphones.

By helping fund this project, you will help 150 students have headphones for activities in the classroom!

Using Chromebooks allows for differentiation of materials. By asking students to view leveled material online, I can help meet the needs of all students within my classroom! We would appreciate any help with this project!
