I am a sixth-grade teacher at a high poverty and high needs middle school. My students have already overcome many obstacles in their short lives. They come to school not just to learn but also for two hot meals (often the only meals of the day), warmth, safety, structure, and to be loved. Reading is often a struggle for most of my students. They did not have the benefit of being read to at home as a child. I am embarking on my eighteenth year at this school. My biggest passion is helping my struggling or non-readers find that right book that transforms them into life-long readers.
"I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples." ~ Mother Theresa
We have an extremely diverse population, and the needs of our students are great. Due to a lack of funding, it is often difficult to fulfill these needs. With your help, we can create the ripples that build into great tsunamis.
We love using our Chromebooks but need to keep them charged and safe. We are very lucky to have five Chromebooks. However, they need a home. This Tech Tub would not only keep our Chromebooks charged but it would also allow me to lock them up for safe keeping.
This handy tub will allow my students to continue to enjoy a school year full of great learning opportunities and fun experiences!
It will keep our technology safe and charged.
It's often the little things that can make a world of difference to my students. Thank you in advance on behalf of my students!
