My Students

My students are a bright lovable bunch. They enjoy reading and solving math problems as well as spending time with their friends. By going to school, they escape the harsh realities of life in their low income communities. School was their second home and I was their second parent.

Unfortunately, due to Covid-19, my school will now be closed until the end of the school year.

My students will no longer get to escape their hardships. Luckily, our school had a grant where students each got to have a computer in the classroom. They are currently using that same computer to do their work and to communicate with me via video chat. Things are getting back to their "normal" life in school.

My Project

With distance learning in full effect now, due to Covid-19, my students are becoming more independent. However, with big families, noise can be a problem.

My students are in need of headphones to help them stay focused so they can complete their work online.

We have daily video calls, where I go over new material for Math and Language Arts. By having headphones, they can hear me better and the outside noise will be no more. I want to deliver these headphones to my students. I know they will put them to use, not only now due to this pandemic but forever.
