My Students

My students are an engaged, inquisitive bunch of young scholars who are constantly asking questions and wanting to gain knowledge. We have started a wonderful new language arts program this year that includes a technology component which they absolutely love.

Thanks to my wonderful friends and family, my students will be able to utilize 6 brand new laptops to complete these programs.

I am now creating a project so that we can properly store these devices safely in my classroom!

My Project

This Tech Tub will allow me to securely and safely store the technology gifted to me by my wonderful donors in my first project! Working in a high crime area, our classrooms have fallen victim to theft in the past.

Through this secure storage bin, students will learn responsibility and how to properly care for their new materials!

I will feel peace of mind knowing our new supplies are locked safely away when I leave the building each night! This will also allow ease of access during the day for my students to make transitions more efficient. Thank you again for your support!
