The Joyful Sound of Peace and Play

My students need the Insignia and Sony headphones to prevent distractions while focusing on their individualized, online lessons.

My Students

My school is military connected, which results in a rather transient student body. Students come and go though many come and stay. I want to be able to pick-up where the previous school may have left off.

We service a low-income population.

This does not limit our ability to teach. This heightens my willingness to expose my students to information and experiences they may otherwise not be afforded. As long as we're interested and excited they will be more interested and excited.

Our students are, in fact, tabla rasas - blank slates. They CAN and will learn. I'm here to get what we need to continue to make this happen. Thank you for reading and hopefully you can help be the change we need to meet our goals.

My Project

Over the years, you devise techniques and materials to suit the needs of your students. Some students can work around noise while others are easily distracted by the faintest of whispers. These headphones are a must-have in my class.

I encourage my students to sit, stand and even recline if it makes them comfortable enough to complete their tasks.

This is why the wiggle wedge will be beneficial. Some students just need something else to keep them anchored enough to focus. Speaking of focus, I love engineering activities! We have a marble and chutes activity that the students just love. I specifically chose this one to challenge my students. It sets the stage for developing their scientific method skills.

The filing system will help organize small & remediation group materials. With limited funding and space for additional class furniture this shelving unit will be a good fit.
