My Students

My students thrive on a challenge and love to explore new ideas, topics, and interests. They are very interested in the world around them.

My second graders are inquisitive and enthusiastic learners who want to excel in the classroom.

Their motivation and engagement is of the utmost importance to me as an educator, as this will set the stage for their learning.

I want my students to be problem solvers that can see that there maybe more than one way to solve a problem. I want my students to also have the opportunity to be heard!

My Project

I'm asking for a Qball microphone ball to add some excitement in the classroom. This special microphone is a portable, throwable microphone that is made of light, soft, durable foam designed to take a beating. When someone speaks into the ball, it projects their voice for everyone to hear. This is especially helpful for those quiet students that I have in my class.

Help me bring this power and engagement into my classroom.

This is a fun way to keep students engaged and for more students to hear themselves and each other by throwing and passing the ball. This will be motivation, for many, to participate in class discussions. Hearing each other's thinking and responses is powerful in a classroom.
