My Students

My students walk into our classroom every day full of life, ready to learn, and excited for what is in store for them that day. I want them to know I believe in them, and they can do anything.

I teach at a Title I school where 100% of the students receive free lunch.

Many of my students receive backpack food on the weekend. Despite so many hardships, my students are eager to learn and do their best. They want to be in school because they want to learn all they can so they can be successful one day. My students deserve the best! I want to be able to provide them with that!

My Project

There are so many great programs out there that can assist our students in literacy, especially fluency! My students need headphones with microphones in order to practice their reading fluency! Students can use these headphones to read with and then hear their reading back! This is such a great tool for students to become more fluent readers!

Technology is changing literacy in the classroom!

These headphones could be used for so many different programs! They would change the way my students read. Unfortunately, my students need a lot of literacy support. Any tool we give them to aid their reading would be life changing for them. Please help my students with literacy support through this technology!
