My Students

My students love technology. In my classroom, we use technology to connect with people and places all over the world. We need a new speaker so that all of the students can hear global music, language, and sounds.

I teach in an urban alternative public high school in Utah.

We serve at-risk youth. Most of our students qualify for free lunch. We are incredibly diverse. Over 80 languages are spoken in our building. I work with 9th-12th graders. Many of my students are teen moms. I am a second year teacher. I have already purchased many materials for my classroom, but these materials are not enough. These students deserve more.

My Project

In my history classroom, learning is interactive. Students have the opportunity to engage in activities appropriate for all learning styles. Some students excel at public speaking. Some learn best by reading, and others are visual and audio learners who benefit from video. My classroom needs new speakers so all of my students can participate in the classroom. Video gives students a chance to experience people and places all over the globe. Music allows students to access shared components of their global community.

We need new speakers.

Speakers are often seen as a luxury in the classroom, but they are not. In this modern media-based world, it is important that classrooms stay abreast of technology. It is difficult to engage the modern student without taking advantage of sound and video. Your donation will ensure that my students have access to the best learning resources available. Thank you for your caring and willingness to believe in our children.
