My Students

I am a Career & Technical Center teacher who has 60 students throughout my four classes. We are trying to elevate the CTE Culinary Arts Program within our school district. The students are excited and hard-working. Each of them has a great sense of humor and they make me laugh every day. We are excited to have fundraisers like our fall soup sale, holiday pie sale, Christmas cookie sale, etc. However, we can always use more help to get the items we need to make our program more successful.

We are a very low income school district where funding is necessary to the success of our students.

However, this is not always an easy road to navigate within the confines of our school district. I, as a teacher, feel the need to help us get the resources we need for success in any way that I can. It is important to me that my students leave my program as knowledgeable as possible and with the confidence to go into the culinary arts field knowing they have the proper training.

My Project

Chromebooks are amazing technology for use in any classroom. In my classroom we will use them to institute an online textbook, complete projects that require research and presentations, complete homework and accomplish key math training, all to make the students successful not only in my class but others as well. We are a low income school where a lot of the students do not have access to a computer or internet at home. Seeing these students struggle to complete projects and homework on their phones is saddening.

Chromebooks offer my students the access they need to accomplish the basic requirements of their classes.

In my class, they allow my students to gain access to a world outside their town and opens their minds to new knowledge. We explore cuisines through videos, pictures, research and recipes. Chromebooks are such a help in a school where computer access is so limited.

We have a few Chromebooks already but are looking to expand them into a class set. We also need a laptop, as I currently use my personal laptop to present slide shows, show videos, store information, etc. Having more Chromebooks allows me to give my students a better educational environment that not only benefits them in my class, but every other class as well.
