Three Cheers: We All Can Hear!

Help me give my students headphones that will enable them to use the computers and iPads without disturbing Guided Reading or Math instruction.

My Students

I often get the question, "Where do you teach?" After sharing, I almost always get this reaction: "Oh my, isn't that challenging? Do you actually get to teach?"


My kids are awesome! They are eager to learn, curious, and adaptive to new challenges! I love learning beside them, and from them. Despite the fact that many come into my classroom with a number of social issues, they are motivated and excited learners. While my students don't all share the same culture, most share an economic status. One hundred percent of our student body qualifies for free breakfast and lunch.

Despite all of the challenges that they face, my students come to school willing and eager to learn. They have great plans, hopes, and dreams for the future. They are funny and bright, and I consider myself lucky to be their teacher.

As an International Baccalaureate school, we "prepare students to become active, caring, lifelong learners who demonstrate respect for themselves and others and have the capacity to participate in the world around them. It focuses on the development of the whole child." Your donations will help in this development! Thanks!

My Project

My classroom is lucky to have six student computers and six old, but still kicking, iPads. My students love using them to research for projects, practice developing their Reading and Math skills, and to play games during indoor recess time!

As you can imagine, with all those programs running at the same time, it can get pretty noisy, even with the sound turned low--Headphones are the perfect solution!

These Lakeshore headphones would allow students to use our classroom technology during Guided Reading and Math instruction without running the risk of distracting other students with outside noise. Even better, they are volume adjustable, so their little ears won't be harmed by loud noises.
