My Students

A typical day in my classroom starts 30 minutes before the first bell. My students trickle in and quickly start working on mastering addition and subtraction facts on their iPads. There are lots of cheers and celebrating as students reach individual milestones in their learning. It's an awesome way to start the day.

Welcome to my class, where laughter and learning go hand in hand!

This has been my classroom motto for the last 19 years. My students are having so much fun they don't even realize they are learning too! I teach a group of wonderful First Graders! They show such a happiness and eagerness to learn but they have to overcome so many obstacles. We are a Title I school. More than 95% of our students are on the free lunch program. I am often the one providing my students the materials and supplies they need to be successful in the classroom. Despite the obstacles they face, they come to school each morning with a smile and a curiosity to learn. My passion is teaching my young students how to be successful, life-long learners. The sky's the limit!

My Project

My students use their iPads throughout the school day. They are working on individual reading and math programs and need headphones to get the full benefit of these programs. However, we are always having problems with our headphones. The cords get tangled and twisted, they break, and occasionally get chewed on! My students spend precious minutes trying to untangle their cords. All attempts to keep our cords tangle-free have failed. That is why I am asking for a class set of wireless bluetooth headphones so that my students (and I) are no longer frustrated with tangled, twisted headphone and ear bud cords.
