My Students

My students are very special first graders in a high needs area of a borough in New York. Many of my students are English Language Learners and children with special needs. Each student is unique in his or her own way and deserves to have the best educational experience possible. All of my students receive free lunch and come to school every day eager to learn.

Unfortunately, my classroom does not always have the supplies we need.

Every donation makes a difference in my students' lives. I look forward to creating projects that will make our classroom a joyful learning environment. Thank you!

My Project

First graders work on verbal skills, explaining to others and discussing ideas. Many times, these students have great things to share in our classroom discussions but are held back by the volume of their voices. The throwable Qball microphone is a wonderful product to introduce in my classroom to help build our classroom community, help increase my classroom participation and engagement.

By donating to our project, you will not only help to improve and increase student attention and focus, but you will also ultimately help to increase their academic achievement.

It would also increase our classroom community because we would use it for our weekly Class Meetings. We would use it to toss in our meeting to share any of our concerns, kudos, questions and suggestions. Not only would my shy students get a voice but everyone would be able to get heard. I know they will be excited to be able to share their ideas and build their confidence.
