The majority of my students come from the south side of a major metropolitan city where poverty and crime are rampant. More than 95% of my students are on free and reduced lunch, and they have figured out how to make do with very little. Yet, their dreams are not diminished.
My school is a school of choice.
We are a public charter school, and we accept anyone and everyone if there is room to grow. Our students come to us because we provide a safe place for all. No one is stigmatized for their past actions, and no one is penalized for the current life situations. We have students who are gang members, and we have students who are National Merit Scholars. We have students with court-order convictions, and we have students who have been accepted to some of the most prestigious colleges in the country. We have students who are undocumented, and we have alumni come back to mentor the next generation.
This Chromebook cart will house the Chromebooks that I currently have for my advanced math students and keep them safe and organized. We are currently using dish racks and several power strips on a counter in my classroom, but my students deserve to have a modern container that keeps these tools safe (because it locks), charged, and easy to transport when we have to move rooms. They're used to having a cart in their other subject areas, and the cart will update our classroom to the same standards that the other subject areas have been afforded through other grants and projects.
