My Students

As the Computer Lab teacher, I see all ages everyday in my classroom, from Kindergarten through Fourth grade.

My students are eager to learn and improve, which makes my job a little easier.

My students start in Kindergarten, most not knowing how to even turn a computer on, or what a keyboard is, or a mouse pad etc. As they progress through the grades, they have learned not only how to turn computers on, but some have dug deeper and can do things I do not even know how to do!

The kids here are from a small town, where everyone knows everyone. Most are kind and helpful and will do anything you ask them to do, and sometimes without you having to ask them. I look forward to having them back in my class this year!

My Project

The color coded stickers I have requested for my classroom are perfect for giving the students a visual on what fingers are supposed to push which buttons on the keyboard. It is much easier for them to understand if they can SEE the difference versus trying to guess.

These supplies would make their learning experience MUCH smoother and the different colors would keep their attention longer versus the monochromatic white and black keyboards they have now.

It is key to get them to start typing correctly now since the world is run on technology at this point! Help me help them!
