My Students

"If a child cannot learn in the way we teach, we must teach in a way that the child can learn." - Ignacio Estrada

My school has a high percentage of free and reduced-price lunch recipients.

We also have a large diversity of cultural and ethnic backgrounds. This year, in the computer lab I will see multiple groups of students from kindergarten all the way to 6th grade multiple times a week and during our school wide testing sessions.

My Project

My students will be so excited to have their own brand new, comfortable headphones! The sound level in the classroom is too high. Many students are annoyed by the noise level within the classroom. Headphones will bring the sound level down and allow students to concentrate on their online assessments. Therefore, it is crucial that we receive new headphones for our classroom.

These headphones will help create a successful learning environment for our students.

These headphones will also be extremely helpful when students have to complete online assignments and tests.
