My Students

I teach a very diverse group of students in a high needs area. My students are so cheerful, hard working and kind. They come to school ready and excited with a smile on their face!

These kids come into our classroom and work so hard.

Because of this, I see growth every single day. I am so proud to be their teacher because I get to watch them soar each and every day. The 24 ten year old kids that I get to spend time with each day inspire me to be my best, and I want to do the best I can for them. This is why I need you!

My Project

My students work so hard in class each and every day. It is always my goal to find new ways to engage and support them in their learning. In our classroom, discussion and participation is key to success.

By amplifying my students voices with a QBall Throwable microphone, I can ensure that every person is heard.

Not only will their voices be heard, but they will have so much fun with this wonderful piece of technology. What ten year old wouldn't love to toss a ball around their classroom?

Using this tool, I can encourage meaningful discussions while also having a wonderful time with my students. I hope that you will support myself and my students so that every voice in my classroom is amplified.
