My Students

My 4th grade class is made up of 30 amazing kiddos. Despite the various obstacles they may face outside of school, my students greet me every morning with a hug and a smile on their face.

Each student brings something different to our class, filling our days with laughter, inspiration, learning, and fun.

Even on our most difficult day, my students show me that they are such compassionate and caring people who can always make me laugh.

My Project

Having access to headphones will help my students in so many different ways. Through the pandemic, we have transitioned to doing much of our learning on computers. Every day, students use computers for online meetings, watching math tutorial videos, listening to stories, and listening to music. Headphones will help my students be able to focus and complete their work without worrying about 30 computers having volume on at the same time, which can be so distracting! Students also are required to meet a listening comprehension standard, which can be hard to achieve when they can't hear. Having headphones will help my students be successful!
