My Students

I teach a wonderful group of students, in a high poverty neighborhood. The children I teach have the same drive to learn as students in more affluent neighborhoods.

I have been teaching in this same neighborhood for twelve years, and for the past ten years, I have seen parents struggle to buy basic supplies for their children.

They often have to choose whether to buy school supplies or food. Needless to say, the parents chose to buy food. A lack of supplies can really hurt a student's self-esteem​, which then affects their learning.

My Project

Thanks to Donorschoose, I have been blessed with a set of Chromebooks, and my students use them on a daily basis. They conduct research on them, and they practice skills they are struggling with. They also use them for various STEM activities such as programming robots and coding their own games. Currently, they are using them to research earthquakes and architecture to build and design earthquake proof buildings.

In order to make sure they are able to use them daily, they need to be left out charging overnight, and this can lead to the theft of the Chromebooks.

To help protect against theft, I am asking for a Tech Tub. The Tech Tub not only allows me to safely lock up the Chromebooks, but I can also safely and neatly charge them.
