Mrs. Townsend from Troy NY is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Charged Up for Learning!

My students need to have a charging cart for Chromebooks to be ready for each day's learning. The charging cart will safely lock and store the Chromebooks at the end of the day.

My Students

My students always strive to do their best. They come in happy to be at school, to learn, and see their friends. I teach math and science to two wonderful classes of fourth grade students. Both classes are inclusion classes with a wide variety of ability and diverse learning styles.

Many of my students live in poverty or are economically disadvantaged, yet they continue to have a positive attitude and their personalities shine.

They love learning and are full of questions. They strive to do their best work, despite the challenges many of them encounter. Our school is in a wonderful community that supports education; however, there is a lot of poverty. All of the students in our school have a free breakfast and lunch. Having the ability to learn risk-free and work with partners is an integral part of our classroom. My students know that education is the key to working to have a successful future.

My Project

The charging cart will allow us to have fully charged Chromebooks for the students to use each day. The Chromebooks are an important of the learning activities for the students and they need them ready daily. Currently, the students need to monitor the battery levels and let me know when to recharge. Sometimes we get so busy, this step is forgotten which means a few students may not get to use a Chromebook for that class.

Security of the Chromebooks is vital.

Our procedure is to lock the Chromebooks in a regular storage cabinet in our classroom. That means that every day all of the Chromebooks need to be transferred from the cabinet to a bookcase. At the end of each day, I have to carry them back to the cabinet to safely lock them up.
