My Students

Our students are our future, they are our doctors, lawyers, engineers, police officers, they are a reflection of who we were and who are now. Bright-minded individuals who seek knowledge, growth, and support. The experience they gain now can sometimes determine whom they will become.

They are the ones who visually represent a day at our school through the eyes of an EBA Knight.

They are the storytellers and the ones who will allow us to remember moments throughout time.

My Project

This project consist of many components which will be used to build a computer together in class. They learn individually what each part is capable of doing, but putting it together will really be something special for the students.

Together we are stronger.

Important components to this project consist of the mid-tower case, which is where everything will be placed in. The bronze ATX power supply helps everything turn on to fully experience the power. Other essential components include the graphic card, motherboard, processor, ram and the solid state hard drive are all very crucial to the project and keeping up with today's fast paste world of technology.

Students will work together building this computer very carefully, each one will have an important role in order to make this a successful project. This will teach the student team building, patience, and even organization along many other life skills.
