My Students

I am a first-year​ teacher at a priority school in SW DC. Our school has been labeled as a "40-40" school, meaning that we are among the lowest performing schools in our district. One hundred percent of our kiddos receive free or reduced-price lunch. Our school population also has a high number of special education students. In my room, I have a variety of learners, including students with ADHD, speech impediments, learning disorders, and emotional disturbance.

We don't receive supplies from parents or the school, so we are trying to fill the gap with help from donors!

With your help, we can create a loving, warm learning environment for my first graders where they have access to all the materials they need to learn!

My Project

During the day, we use iPads for both math and literacy centers. While I am pulling small groups of students to work on skills they need, other students are completing tailor-made literacy and math interventions (such as ST Math, Lexia, and iReady) that our district has purchased.

Currently, without headphones, the entire class can hear the iPad interventions, and we are having trouble focusing in my small groups!

My small group interventions keep on getting interrupted by asking kids to turn the volume down on their iPads. Having durable headphones means that the rest of the class can focus on my lesson without hearing the iPad noise.
