My Students

Greeting my class each morning usually includes multiple hugs, high fives and lots of smiles! My third grade students love walking into our 21st-century classroom where they are challenged to go beyond what they thought was possible.

Each week, I strive to challenge these 8 and 9-year-olds to think deeper and gain knowledge through hands-on learning activities.

They come to school each day ready to meet the challenge head on! While some students may struggle more than others, they are encouraged and guided along the path that leads to success!

My Project

Let's face it, technology is not going away and today's students are more engaged in their learning when technology is involved. Many times students that struggle with staying on task or focusing on their assignments benefit when assignments are online. However, nothing is more disheartening than watching a student with ADD/ADHD get excited for a project on our laptops than watching that same student unable to do the work because the laptop wasn't properly charged the night before.

This project is for a Chromebook Charging Cart that we can use to both store and charge our devices.

Last year my class was very fortunate to be part of 1:1 student/laptop pilot program. Even though the pilot program ended, I was allowed to keep the devices for this and future school years. Charging the devices has proven to be a bit of a logistical challenge.

Currently, I am using a power-strip and a power tower to keep our laptops ready to go. Unfortunately, there are many times that cords unknowingly come unplugged or the cords get tangled and students can't locate the proper cord for their device. This results in a laptop that is not ready for them to use.

Having a charging cart would provide a secure and consistent place for students to store their devices and easily plug them in to be charged.
