My Students

My students remind me each and every day how fortunate I was to have people that supported and believed in me. How blessed I was to be given equal opportunities to learn, develop and grow as any other student despite my socioeconomic status growing up.

Our moto, "Together we will succeed No excuses No exceptions." My students face many hardships that a young child should never have to face.

Many come from low-income families that struggle to put food on the table or a roof over their heads. Over 90% of our student body is identified as living at or below poverty level, and 30 of our families are identified as homeless.

Despite these struggles my students are engaged and active learners that show an eagerness to learn on a daily basis. I have a diverse classroom that includes 9 students on IEP's, 8 English Language Learners, and 3 students transitioning from a self-contained classroom into a general education room. Our moto, "We will succeed! No excuses. No exceptions."

My Project

It seems like such a small thing right? Headphones! You would be surprised at how much they cost, and how many students families have little to no extra money to purchase a pair for school.

Living in the digital age that we do our students are fortunate to have access to computers that help them navigate the online world - however it can get noisy when they are trying to listen to content videos!

We use computers to research and extend our learning. Our students also use computers for individualized online instruction to help them grow beyond the classroom. Help provide my students with headphones that will allow them the full benefits of online learning.
