My Students

My school is in Norfolk, Virginia. We are a Title I school where all students receive free breakfast, many receive free or reduced-rate lunch. At our school, there is a heavy population of special education and English language learners.

My students are hard workers who deserve every advantage they can get.

Especially this year with Covid. We work hard to create a sense of community where all types of learners are valued and welcome. You would find their empathy, inclusiveness, and understanding to be top-notch.

My Project

I have found that many of my students live in homes with a lot of other things going on. Whether it be siblings also distance learning, parents working from home, or younger family members running around. THESE HOUSES ARE LOUD.

The gift of these headphones would help my students cancel out that background noise while allowing me to hear them better through the microphone.

It will be a win-win situation! I look forward to their focus increasing and attention spans lengthening. These kids deserve to have every advantage and I intend to give it to them!

The ink will be used to print resources for the students.
