Mrs. Rocha from Refugio TX is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

My Students

The children who come into my classroom are awesome kids! They have been through a lot this year with Hurricane Harvey hitting our area and yet they are still energetic, inquisitive, and love to learn. These children have learning disabilities and sometimes behavior issues and typically need individual instruction.

They use a variety of manipulatives to help them learn skills on a daily basis.

They come with varying ability levels but all are eager to learn. Our classroom is always full of activity with children working on different skills. Throughout the year, they get to know each other and will work together on these activities. Often times a first or second grader will sit beside a third grader and work and learn together. They are truly amazing kids!

My Project

Students in my classroom have various conditions and disabilities that make them special. Issues like ADHD, Autism, and other sensory issues make it difficult for them to focus and complete tasks that require their undivided attention. These students will benefit from wearing the noise canceling earmuffs.

They will help them to better focus when distracted by background noise in their environment.

They will not only be able to wear them in my special education classroom, but also in general education classrooms and assemblies throughout the year.

The students have been sharing a few pairs throughout this past year, and I have noticed how the earmuffs have helped them throughout their school day.

We have been limiting the number of students who are able to use them because we did not have a sufficient number of the noise canceling earmuffs.

With this purchase, students who request them will be able to use them and I know they will greatly benefit from them. The noise canceling earmuffs help them focus and complete tasks more accurately. Also, several students have requested them during assemblies where the whole school attends. Music and sounds can be too loud for them to enjoy and or even attend.

The earmuffs help them relax and enjoy the assembly! I know this donation project will greatly help each student that I currently work with and they will be used for many years to come.
