My Students

I teach at a wonderful school where students are in collaboration with teachers towards building a classroom community and a culture where leadership and higher learning are a focal point. The demographics of the student's is African-American. Our students come from all over the city of Columbus.

It is important that our school is able to stay current with the trends in technology, basic supplies, and academic resources to promote the higher learning that we are achieving.

These students are willing and wanting to excel. Providing opportunities to experience academic learning in various formats is a goal.

My Project

Our school has chrome books that student's use for online academic learning. The student's often times have to go without headphones because we do not have a class set. The student's are easily distracted when they do not have headphones on to help them focus.

In my classroom I also have a listening station where student's can listen to books on CD.

It is important that the students have headphones so that the stories are not being read out loud to cause extra noise during station time.

Lastly, our district administers three assessments throughout the year that determine the student's growth. The headphones are essential to keep the student's focused and optimize their chances of doing well on the assessment.
