My Students

Generations have walked the halls at our school! It is packed with pride and tradition. My students work extremely hard academically and are self-motivated. My students' brains are like sponges and constantly soak in information! They are definitely in the process of becoming life-long learners. They come from families who set high expectations for their children.

My students have a true love and passion for school.

They consistently ask if they can have "more work" on top of the assignments I've already assigned. I love my students and believe that they deserve the very best education possible!

My Project

Implementing a Qball will enhance discussions, debates, and presentations in my classroom. I have several students who have unique and bold ideas that are often not heard because they naturally speak at a low volume. Providing a Qball will allow them to speak at their normal voice level, yet allow everyone else in the room to hear them loud and clear.

Because my students work in collaborative groups daily, my classroom can become fairly noisy.

Students become enthralled while working with their peers, so they often do not hear my attention-getter the first time I call it out. Using the Qball to get my students' attention will support my classroom management.

By connecting the Qball to my classroom audio system, everyone's voice will be heard!
