My Students

I have a diverse class of 21 students in a K-2 school of around 500+ students. Our school is a Title I school where about 40% of our students receive free or reduced-price lunch.

My students walk into our classroom every day full of life, ready to learn, and excited for what is in store for them.

I want to give them every opportunity to get the best education they deserve.

The Redcat voice amplification system will allow every child to hear me and not miss out on key instruction.

My Project

Hearing is the primary channel for learning. Allowing my students to hear me clearly throughout all of our learning adventures will be a true asset to every child in this classroom.

Redcat system will ensure access to students that may have a hearing impairment, auditory processing difficulties, and/or difficulties with staying focused and engaged.

A classroom can get noisy when learning is going on. Redcat voice amplification system creates an environment where each child has an equal opportunity to hear the teacher’s instruction. By simply hearing what’s being taught, every child enjoys a higher level of achievement. Studies have shown a child's academic achievement grow with the use of a voice amplification system in the classroom. I want to give each student the best possible learning environment. This will allow me to push them to their highest level of academic achievement. At the end of the day, I want what is best my students.
