My Students

My position is the school librarian and I serve approximately 450 students from Pre-K to 8th grade. Many of my students have special needs.

All students attend weekly one-hour library classes where students are taught to become critical thinkers, enthusiastic readers, skillful researchers, and ethical users of information.

Many of our students don't have a way of getting to the public library and look to the school library to provide all the books and technology. Our students are from low-income families. All students receive free breakfast and almost all receive a free lunch.

Unfortunately, as a result of the current budget crisis, our school does not have the funds to purchase the required materials for the library.

My Project

Some of my students have unique needs and are very eager to learn using technology. Students with special needs love coming to the library and using technology and through generous Donor Choose donations, we have iPads and Chromebooks for their use. Now we need headphones.

Unfortunately regular headphones don't work well for my special needs students.

Many have sensory issues and are not able to put pressure on their ears or heads so I am asking for neckband headphones. This type of a headphone will allow my students to place the speakers on their shoulder and listen to online books as well as practice reading skills through online reading programs.

These headphones will ensure that ALL my students have the opportunity to achieve academic success in today's technological world.
