I am a teacher in New Jersey and I have a wonderful 4th-grade class this year! They are motivated, ambitious, and so very sweet. I've stayed with them for two years now, so we have a really special bond.
My students are enthusiastic about learning, and they thrive on my theatrical teaching and creativity.
We work in whole-group, small-group, partners, and individually. They are so inventive and love coming to school. I look forward to seeing their bright faces each morning!
Adding a class set of noise-cancelling headphones to my classroom will give all of my students opportunities to strengthen their independence. I am a firm believer in flexible seating, and being able to work wherever students can focus best. When students work independently, there is always something to distract them; the tapping of a pencil, the coughing of a neighbor, or flat out talking. With a class set of these headphones, everyone will have an equal opportunity to work distraction-free. I have two pairs floating around the room currently, but it's a daily struggle trying to rotate and decide who the lucky owner of the headphones will be each day.
