Headphones for Translation
With these funds, I will be able to communicate with my new students. I teach at the most diverse school in our district. These headphones will make communicating and learning for my new students from the middle east and also from South America. I have added 15 new students from the following countries: Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iran, Iraq, Lebanon, and Venezuela. Many of these students have not been to school before. I am starting with the basics (1st grade) level information. Some of these students only speak Farsi so I have a very difficult time communicating with them. I can see in their eyes that they are very overwhelmed. I think the headphones will allow me to develop lessons that will help them acclimate to our country and language.
Thank you for taking the time to read my request for funds.
Back Up Plan
If we do not reach our goal I will have to purchase these with my own funds. This means I may be able to get 2 at a time.
