I am a special education teacher in a large urban school district in a high poverty area. Our school is an IB (International Baccalaureate) World School. I teach math in grades fifth through eighth inclusion classrooms. Our school's focus is on inquiry. We want our students to ask questions and then find answers. We also follow an international baccalaureate curriculum to help prepare our students to become international minded. My students are amazing individuals. They come to school every day knowing that they don't necessarily learn like everyone else, but they put their heart and soul into everything they do. I want my students to learn that hard work is its own reward, and that a good attitude can get them almost anywhere they want to go.
My students have Chromebooks that they use to access math sites like Dreambox during our station time. Since I service grades five through eight, I am constantly moving to different classrooms for instruction. Keeping our Chromebooks charged all the time is difficult. This portable charging station will be helpful in keeping them charged all the time so students can use it when it is needed. I use station teaching as one of the models of co-teaching with my general education teaching partner. Technology is one station and we need our Chromebooks to be ready for use always. This portable device will do just that for us.
