My Students

"Thank you for not giving up on me even though I still have all F's in my other classes." The student that wrote this went on to score proficient on his TCAP, which he has never done before. My classroom is full of knowledge and encouragement, and I hope you can help me continue to see these results!

They are all curious, fun-loving, hilarious kids.

I teach in a large suburban middle school in TN. My students have a bright future ahead of them. I hope to open their eyes to the wonder of science, and these students are excited and motivated to learn, especially about the world around them. Their interests in Science are sparked when they can research and explore the "real world." Bringing technology and science to their fingertips through the Kindles to help expand their experiences and sets the stage to learn more. I hope to continue to inspire their thirst for knowledge through the Kindles. This project will also allow them to help others learn through student created activities and projects.

My Project

My students often use computer programs in order to practice content material, many of which require sound.

I have continuously purchased cheap, earbud headphones in order to facilitate this, and have come to the conclusion that investing in sturdy sets of headphones is the way to go.

These headphones will help make using these programs easier, and will also save me from having to constantly purchase new headphones yearly.

My students use a variety of programs such as Brainpop, Explore learning, Virtual labs, Stop motion editing, etc, and sturdier headphones will ease the process of detangling cheap headphone sets. Thank you in advance for helping me with this process!
