My Students

I have an awesome second-grade class in Bloomington, Minnesota. It is a very diverse school. My school is classified as a high-poverty school, with many students on the free or reduced-price lunch program. My students are made up of a wide variety of abilities, interests, and challenges.

They are all at different academic levels and have an array of talents.

My students come in daily with a positive attitude and are ready and willing to learn. From learning support students to English language learners, I am here to teach them all, and give them the best education. Our school is a community working together to create a positive, academic, and social experience for all learners to soar.

My Project

The students in my classroom use their iPads for learning, research, and collaboration every single day. Headphones are a necessary part of learning. Having access to quality headphones to utilize during iPad time would benefit my students while they focus on individualized learning.

My students use iPads to work with a partner and collaborate in small groups.

But these students also need to represent their learning, listen to digital resources, and focus on their own thinking individually. Many families at my school do not have the resources to purchase quality and lasting headphones for their children. The Lil' Gadgets headphones have passed the quality test for some students in my room. We are now ready for a classroom set!
