I have the privilege to teach fourth grade at a diverse public school. I teach at a Title I school in Nevada in which a high percentage of my students come from bilingual homes and receive free or reduced-price lunch. My school serves a low-income population in which most students are English Language Learners. A portion of these students only receives exposure to English in school. They work with great enthusiasm and effort to improve their English and progress toward a mastery of the language.
My students face tough obstacles in their lives but arrive at school smiling and ready to learn.
They love their teachers. Our school truly is a community and a family. We each do our part as a student and teacher. We work side by side with one mission in mind: our students’ success.
We are in need of headphones for our classrooms. By using headphones the students can work independently on a computer or iPad. All of the students are on different levels, and with different computer programs and apps. Each student can have individual practice with their own set of headphones. Each student can work on their level and not be distracted from what other students are listening or working on.
We had old headphones, but over the years the headphones stopped working.
The new headphones will allow students to hear with both ears and clearly. Many students cannot afford a new set of headphones. I also am requesting a storage pocket for the headphone so we stay organized.
A couple of my students are mainstreamed for classes, and the headphones will be available for them to bring out to their class. Students are responsible with the headphones and respect the new product.
