My Students

I teach an extremely talented and unique group of fifth graders in Kentucky. They are both advanced program students and regular program students. Several of my students are from different countries.

We are considered a school with moderate poverty, but we do not qualify for additional state and government funds.

Each of our at-risk students needs the opportunity to have the same resources as students at other schools. My students are eager and excited. They are creative and want to learn more. They are eager and seek knowledge on a daily basis.

My Project

My students have access to laptops. They often work alone and in pairs in the classroom and outside in the hall. When they are using laptops in the hall, they have to put them on their laps, which sometimes leads to them falling off of their laps or not having enough space to work. Using the portable laptop stand will make it much easier to use their laptops and do their work at the same time! Studies show that more and more students are getting 'technology neck' from spending so much time looking down at their phone and computers.

Having laptops at their eye level will benefit them in this way, as well as having a secure place to keep their laptop while they are working and researching.

With my goal next year of implementing more flexible seating, this will be a bonus for all of my students.
