My Students

Forty years ago, Apple was just a fruit. Twenty years ago, Google was just a funny word. Did you know that over half of the jobs that current pre-kindergarten students will hold when they graduate high school in 2033 don't even exist yet?

I work as the computer lab teacher in a great, diverse, and effective school.

Here, we have a mix of students who live locally, within walking distance, and many others who travel by school bus, city bus, and private van service to come to our school daily.

We have general education classes, special education services, and students who have been identified as gifted and talented. Our students were born in this country or overseas. I teach students with professional parents and students who rely on governement assistance to live and eat. Every one of these students are "my kids".

My Project

In the computer lab, I see each class once per week for a 50 minute period. When we start a project, it can take several weeks to have every student complete the assignment.

To stay organized, I would like to set up a mailbox system for each class.

This way, the students can take charge of their own materials and easily find them in their own class slot.

The back of my room contains a wall-to-wall 14-foot long cork board. Although this is great for displaying student work, my students actually need a magnetic/erasable space for me to be able to quickly swap info for each class/grade level. This will help the students follow the instructions for their particular assignments, and allow me to write and display info class by class.

These classroom basic items will make learning more accessible and enjoyable for all of my students!
