My Students

I have seventeen amazing students who are all unique in their own way. They are a vivacious bunch who are eager to learn. Our school is a low income Title 1 school that offers free breakfast, lunch, and supper for those who stay after school. My students come to school ready and eager to learn even though most face many challenges such as academic, language, special needs, dyslexia, and economic disadvantages.

I try to create a safe learning environment so that my students always feel welcomed and wanted in my classroom.

My students have flourished in the time that I have spent with them and I enjoy watching them continue to become caring and collaborative learners.

My Project

My students love technology! We have several online learning programs that allow my students to practice their skills that I teach them in class.

Help me give each child a headset so that they can properly focus and listen to their online learning.

Most of my students are second language learners and new headsets with microphones will allow them to practice their listening and speaking skills in English. My students have a lot to say and these new headsets will allow them to better communicate using online learning programs. I am hoping to get a class set of these headphones so that we can use technology on a daily basis.
