My Students

Our school is a Title 1 school where many of the students are living below the poverty line, are English Language Learners, and are FARM (free or reduced price meal) students. In my classroom, I have the most amazing students. I love seeing how excited they are to come to school and learn. My students learn through exploration and play. I need more classroom resources to make sure my students are getting the best experience. Pre-K is the first school experience for my kids so we work hard to create a warm, welcoming environment where students feel comfortable to learn. I strive to give my students the best learning environment possible and work to make this feel safe and loved. Thank you for visiting my donors choose page.

My Project

Our students are learning how to use technology and we go to the computer lab weekly. This project is for a class set of headphones that my students can use during their computer time, small group iPad times, and the listening center. A class set of headphones will help decrease distractions and allow the students to work on their own.

Headphones at the computer helps keep the noise level at a minimum while keeping learning at a maximum.

By reducing the noise distraction, students will be able to concentrate on their screen and not what the person next to them is doing.

We also need a charger for our classroom iPads that was generously purchased through DonorsChoose. Lastly, we also need a couple headphone splitters when I buddy up a few students to practice sharing.

Thank you for your consideration in donating towards our class project!
