My Students

I teach in a wonderful rural community full of hard working, kind students. It is a small community, and I am lucky to be the sole math teacher of this year's fourth grade class.

My class is full of students with different personalities, interests, motivations, strengths and weaknesses.

Everyone comes into school with a different set of background experiences and learning styles.

Every day I try to meet the students where they're at and push them to be the best they can be! I know they can do it!

My Project

With technology's growing presence in the classroom, headphones are a truly essential supply for students. The headphones which I am requesting would allow my students who need help developing reading fluency the opportunity to hear books read aloud. In math, headphones would allow my students to watch and listen to instructional videos made by me. This would give them the opportunity to spend more time learning and developing skills in more personalized small groups.

Headphones would open up a world of possibilities for my students!

No two students learn at the same pace, have the same background, or the same interests. Headphones would allow students to work on many different projects and activities depending on their needs and interests.
