This week’s Tools for Schools visit was to North Crowley Elementary, to the classroom of Amy Guidry.

Guidry asked for a Q-ball, a wireless microphone that the students can use to amplify their voices during class time.

Tools for Schools, brought to our children by the Jim Olivier Family of Companies, got the Q-ball for Guidry’s class.

“I have a microphone myself so my voice is projected, so they can hear me, but it’s important I hear them as well so we can have class discussion,” Guidry said. “The students need to be able to hear other students’ discussions.”

It’s easy for the student to use, she said.

“If they choose to speak to someone else, or call on someone else, or if I call on someone else they can take the ball and throw it to the other student, and they can just speak that way,” Guidry said.

The school has window units, which makes it harder for students and teachers to hear each other.
