My Students

My students live in N.J. This city has one of the highest crime rates in the country. Daily, my students have to deal with crime, gangs. poverty, and no family structure. I go to my students' homes and see their deplorable living conditions. They barely have any furniture, limited lighting, and have bug-infested rooms. While they deal with all of that, many come to school to get a break from their lives and are eager to learn.

One class my students look forward to is Driver Education.

They want to get their driver's license without having to drive illegally, which many do. So many students are bored with school yet are eager to get a class that will be immediately beneficial to them.

Some of my students will wait past their 17th birthdays just to take the New Jersey State written test in my class, even though they could go to the motor vehicle department and take the test.

My Project

My school district is going fully remote teaching. While I am teaching at home. I find that my home computer does not have an adequate volume to clearly hear my students.

My classes consist of 140 students total with about 25 per class.

At times multiple students may be talking at one time which makes it very hard to hear and understand them. I am constantly asking them to repeat what they are saying. I will use a wired speakers and a wired headset to allow a clear and proper communication with my classes.
