I am blessed to teach a wonderful group of inner-city kids. My school is over 98 percent free/reduced price lunch. It blows my mind to see and hear of some of the situations my students go through on a daily basis. From living in the projects, shelters, or even be all out homeless.
These kids deserve the same chance to be successful as any other child at any other school.
My students, while most are eager to learn, also have many disadvantages that others do not. These kids deal with situations on a daily basis that many adults would not be able to handle. Most of them would be at school every day if it were up to them, but many times it is not. If any child deserves a little extra help, it is these guys!!!
This charging cart will help our class to efficiently organize, charge and secure our new chrome book technology on a daily basis. Students are in charge of the technology in my classroom and as such, they know if they fail to take care of this technology it will soon be lost.
This is a big task to put on a group of 3rd graders, however they have already shown great potential on taking care of daily situations which effect their lives.
Giving my classroom this Chromebook cart, will also allow my students the opportunity to take take charge of the equipment they now use on a daily basis. These students have not been introduced to much personal responsibility to this point in their lives but are already showing great pride in taking care of the equipment other classes do not have. They do realize the opportunity they have been given and want to take care of their new equipment.
