My Students

My students are resilient. They have experienced things that set some adults back, but they continue to look forward to the good. They love life despite what can go wrong with it. They give hugs freely and can't wait to share their life with someone else. They've learned and practice the 5 promises of our school: contribution, commitment to quality, honor and integrity, gratitude, and perseverance.

They make me laugh with their 7 year old insight.

They make me proud with their reading gains. They tickle me pink when they call me out for going to Chick-fil-A again! They encourage me when I see them excited about new ideas and knowledge. They move me when I see them not giving up on a hard task. They motivate me to be better when I see them caring for a friend. They are worth all that I can give them.

My Project

These headphones will allow students to record their reading. It is imperative that students are able to listen to themselves read so that they can learn to analyze their reading for successes and areas of growth. This will also allow parents to hear their students read without some of the pressure of having their parent or teacher sitting right in front of them. Students will also be able to use these headphones while other students are engaging in an activity and their reading environment will not be disturbed. This will provide a calmer reading atmosphere for students, especially those who may be easily distracted.
