My Students

Every student in my classroom has a love of learning. Each student is unique and strives to do well. They work hard and attack each day with smiles on their faces. I want to be able to keep that motivation going!

I have an incredible group of students who are kind to one another and work well with partners and in groups.

My students come from a small community. I have a mix of general education students and students with Individualized Education Plans (IEPs). Each child in my school receives free breakfast and lunch.

My Project

Earbuds have the power to keep students concentrated on their own learning experiences. It can help them to increase their concentration when they are working independently, on electronic devices. Students are motivated by technology.

Giving students their own set of earbuds and classroom speakers will help turn up the sound and turn off the sound of students around them.

When all students in the classroom are using earbuds, they are able to select the learning option that best works for them. When we are working whole group speakers will help them hear what we are doing.
