My Students

As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Although they face a life of difficultly outside our four walls, my students have always been excited about learning since day one.

Having technology helps extend their exploration of the English language.

However, technology comes with distractions and my students need to focus on their technology. The majority of my students are English language learners. Technology gives them one-on-one time to experience and interact with our language. With the funding for headphones we will give them a distraction-free environment where they can succeed.

My Project

This project will give my students the ability to focus on their technology learning during their independent study time. In a classroom filled with English language learners, time with technology is designed to increase their concentration and extend their learning. It is vital that the students are focused in and learning without outside distractions. We all know that six and seven year old's have a hard time staying on task when there is a lot going on around them. The headphones will reduce the distractions and increase their attentiveness to the materials being presented via the hands-on classroom technology.

Please consider funding this project to give these students an environment where they can thrive!

The average classroom environment is loud and distracting. With a room full of excited, focused students, your donation will helped create a classroom of students that can succeed!
