My students need headphones to support their individualized learning and maximize their mathematical growth.
As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, they are passionate about their community and finding ways to give back.
My students are creative, clever and full of energy.
They like to move, they love to read and love lots of positive attention. Many of them are being raised in single parent households and receive a free lunch based on their socioeconomic status. These things may prevent them from getting ahead early in life and may not provide them with the life experiences many of us see as "typical". Their circumstances are what they are but I am determined to be sure that they know that they have a voice that can and should be heard. Their lives matter. I want to show them that we can all use our voices and choices to spread much needed love throughout our world.
We are blessed to have one-to-one chromebooks in our 6th grade classroom. These chromebooks are essential to make sure our students receive individualized instruction every single day. Many of the programs we use have instructional videos to teach the students a new strategy or hints to help them practice new skills. It is important for individual students to hear their videos for learning to take place.
Students must be able to hear the videos for the individualized learning to be effective.
I am excited to see how far my students can grow once they can focus on their individual educations.
