My fifth-grade students are amazing students with unlimited potential, but they lack materials in the classroom to fully explore their ideas. The students come from low-income homes where for some the only educational items they come in contact with is at school. Our entire school receives free breakfast, lunch, and dinner due to need. My students have a genuine love for learning. They love to come in early and stay late to help in the room and learn independently. I want to be able to nurture that love before it is lost. My classroom is an inclusion classroom. I often get students with disabilities, since I am disabled as well. I work with them and show them that their disability does not stop them from succeeding.
I am in need of an external hard drive to keep track and keep all of my important lesson plans, ideas, assignments, and data in one safe place when traveling home, to school, or to training's.
Currently I use multiple flash drives and it can be hard to keep track of all of them, the external hard drive will keep everything organized and in one place.
The external hard drive will also help clean up local store issues at home and at school. I would be able to safely backup all my files from my school computer which has a limited storage capacity and not be worried about the district doing a large data dump or clean when new software is installed, which has happened in the past.
The external hard drive will also allow me to share information between myself and my other teachers much more easily as well as backup student produced work for safe keeping.
