My Students

My students are full of potential. They always strive to be the best they can be, regardless of their disabilities. They work hard everyday to reach their goals and to learn even when it seems too hard to understand. We focus on little tasks they can achieve and feel proud of everyday.

My students sometimes come from broken homes and difficult living situations.

They surpass all their hardships and aim to achieve all they desire. Even in the darkest times, they smile and push through.

My Project

Music can make people feel amazing, help them feel free at moments of need. With the support for this project, I hope to be able to help my students enjoy our musical morning that much more.

Without music, life is a journey through a desert.

Music can inspire us to do amazing things; it can change/improve our mood. This HomePod is said to be the latest technology that can deliver clear high quality sound. It is small which makes this device safe for my classroom.

My students will enjoy singing along, learning with songs and even just relaxing with the fulfillment of this project. The HomePod allows me to play unlimited music from my phone, making every occasion special and unique.
