My Students

I get the pleasure of working with all the kids in the school, in my computer lab! We have 19 classes this year and they all have separate times to come in. For some it can be their first introduction to the computer and for others, we'll build on skills they've acquired over the years.

I would love for them to enjoy their computer lab time and be able to introduce them to programs and materials to show them the amazing things we can do with technology!

I love showing them how this really connects to their lives and all the ways they can benefit from the computer and other technology we use through the computer!

My Project

As we move into coding I would love for my students to have something they can touch and feel, to understand that coding is all around them, not just on a computer screen. The mouse will be a great way for students to learn in a fun, exciting way! This will keep them engaged and build teamwork skills! We also need a few supplies to keep our lab up and running smoothly all year, like the headphones, markers, and pencils. Students use the headphones and pencils regularly, and I use dry erase markers on my board to teach. Thank you!
