Kindergarten teacher needs headphones for young learners
COTTAGEVILLE, SC (WCSC) – Chelsea Edens, a teacher at Cottageville Elementary School, says she loves having a class full of amazing kindergartners who are eager to learn.
But Edens faces a challenge that many other teachers face: making sure there are enough supplies for students when school starts. That’s why each week we feature a local educator who hopes to get some of the supplies they need for their classroom.
Edens says that as she prepares for back-to-school in the coming weeks, she hopes to get some much-needed headphones for the Chromebooks her children use.
“Our classroom gets really noisy when I have 24 to 30 kindergartners at the same time doing some kind of play,” Edens says. “Sometimes we are provided with headphones, but unfortunately they are not durable and tear very easily.”
For his Donors Choose project, Edens would like to get a premium set of headphones and microphones for the class.
She says they will be used for testing in math and reading units, as well as for district testing and with many other online programs.
She says she currently doesn’t have proper headphones for her students to hear on their Chromebooks.
Edens says these headphones will also allow her students to hear the books being read to them in the Listening Center, helping them to become wonderful readers and writers.
“The bigger headphones make it comfortable and they can do what they need to do instead of trying to fit headphones into their little ears,” Edens said.
This project still needs $92, but right now donations are doubled.
