My Students

I teach PreK-5 grade students at a low income school. Most of my students are on government assistance and receive free breakfast and lunch. My classes have eighteen to twenty-four students who are eager to learn new things. The district gives only a small amount of money for school supplies, small instruments and repair supplies for Elementary Music. My students love to be challenged with new activities. Many of my students have limited knowledge of the world outside their neighborhood and need more opportunities to learn, create and grow.

My Project

As a musical theater person, I always try to incorporate plays and skits into my music classes. Some of these skits are then used for school programs. One issue that I have come across is that young students really do not know how to use microphones properly.

Having microphones for the use in class and during programs will help the students' voices be heard during programs.

The students can practice using the microphones at times during regular class time so when they need to use a microphone onstage, they will already know how. Having wireless microphones means that there will not be a bunch of cords for the students to trip over while walking.
