My Students

Students in my classroom come in as inquisitive learners. They are willing and ready to learn as much as they can! I work at a Title I school where students require extra resources to benefit from their learning environment.

I have a diverse group of students from many different cultural backgrounds which means my students get the experience of these different types of backgrounds.

Learning from each other and about our differences is an astonishing adventure.

Students that I have are phenomenal learners that have hearts of gold. These kids love their school and love to seek out new knowledge with their teacher and on their own.

My Project

These materials will help my class be able to use technology with headphones! We take assessments on iPads and Chromebooks and do not have enough headphones for everyone. It becomes distracting to the other students when trying to assess or even during learning time.

Having silence is key to concentration!

With these headphones and storage, my class will be able to tune out all the other sounds during assessments, free play and learning time on iPads.

Students will be able to use storage for headphones and other materials they need to keep in a safe place. This storage will be key to helping my class practice responsibility and have an organized place to store materials.
