My Students

My students are multi-faceted with diverse needs at varying levels of academic rigor. Our community has a rich legacy of producing well equipped citizens prepared for 21st century challenges. As a Title I school in a growing urban district, meeting the needs of all learners has become an ever expanding challenge for parents, teachers and well intentioned stakeholders.

Due to ongoing budget cuts and decreased funding, technology resources have been sparse.

Students should not be directly impacted by these changes.

My Project

Students will utilize the head phones to help them focus and enhance the Virtual Learning experiences in their personal home environments. The use of the headphones can help eliminate the distractions that may prevent students from fully engaging in the online platform. Reading, English Language Arts and Social Studies are the three content areas that will be most supported with the use of these devices for my students.

Please help make a positive difference in the lives of our students during this Global Pandemic.

Providing educational resources can help increase their social emotional learning and help raise their academic achievement levels. Student academic success should matter! Be the change that they see!
