My Students

My students are amazing! They challenge me to be a better teacher each and every day! They love music and are very gifted musicians!

My students have a great passion and thirst for learning!

They want to be the best at everything they do, and they work hard every lesson. There is nothing I have thrown at them that they could not master quickly. They deserve the very best that we as a school can offer them. Please help us learn!

My Project

At my school we have several friends that are overloaded by the loudness of school programs and sometimes while in the school cafeteria. I would like to have these noise reducing ear coverings that will allow them to relax and enjoy our programs, and not be overloaded.

If they are in fear of the volume getting too loud, they will only be focused on the fear and not the music.

I want to make it possible for my special friends to enjoy music, and not be in constant fear of it getting too loud.

They would also be able to use these in the cafeteria with the other teachers if the kids at lunch start getting too loud. Please help turn the volume down!
