Hi, I am a second year teacher teaching in South Carolina. I teach at a Title I, low income, high poverty school, and I absolutely LOVE teaching there. My school serves free breakfast and lunch for all students. A good majority of my students receive backpack lunches for weekends.
My students read 1-2 grade levels below their 3rd grade level.
Several of my students speak another language at home. My students lack background knowledge and home resources to further their education.
My students desperately need comfortable headphones to use with their Chromebooks. We are a 1:1 school so it is very important that they have these headphones to listen to educational videos and apps that will read to them. I teach at a high-poverty, low income school and the majority of my students do not have school supplies. It becomes very noisy when my students are all trying to listen to their computers read to them. Having headphones will eliminate the distraction and help them focus. The apps we use help close the learning gaps that many of my students have.
