My Students

As a first year teacher teaching a unique and diverse group of students, I want to provide them with the most enriching and effective educational experience possible. My students come from low income areas in Waukegan where they have limited resources and supplies. My students are eager to learn! They are special because they really want to learn, so by giving them these supplies and resources, they are able to rise above any challenge and be successful individuals. I am asking for a few items that will allow my students to be engaged and comfortable while at school.

My Project

Starting in a few short weeks, my students will be given their own Chromebook to use at school. A lot of my students benefit from online resources, such as Lexia Learning and Dreambox during ELA and math centers. For this reason, I'm in need of a charging cart for all students to be able to have access to a Chromebook at the same time. As of right now, I can only charge up to 6 Chromebooks at a time due to a lack of outlets in my classroom. Therefore, I have a ton of Chromebooks that are not in use on a daily basis.
