My Students

The students involved in this project this year are extremely special. Beyond the fact that they are high level achievers is that they are as hard working of a group of young people that I have had the pleasure of working with. They are dedicated to this project, they collaborate with each other on a level not seen in many adults, and they truly believe in what we are doing. They do everything for the right reasons.

They have worked on weekends, holidays, before school, after school, and even on snow days!

I extremely proud to be part of this group.

My Project

These technology products will aid in our goal of becoming a one on one technology device based school. Our area has been devastated by plant closings and loss of jobs which have adversely affected the socioeconomic status of the people in our community. The loss of these jobs has decreased the tax base of our area and as a result, lowered the ability of our schools to keep up with the rapidly changing technology landscape.

It is the goal of our school system to equip our students with the necessary tools to compete in today's job markets.

These direly needed products will assist in achieving these goals.

Grades 6-8
Nearly all students from low‑income households
