My Students

Here at our school, we have a widely diverse group of students hailing from different countries, economic backgrounds, and ethnic backgrounds. Each school has its own personality, catering to different arrays of interests and needs. At our middle school, we pride ourselves on supporting the individual needs of students in special education classrooms, inclusion classrooms, and general education settings. Our students come together in a community with heart by welcoming all races, religions, and identities.

With an array of students comes an array of minds, and the media center strives to find a way to reach each individual and help them achieve more than they ever imagined.

My Project

The library media center has changed since I was a kid. No longer do we just go to curl up in a corner and read a book, though that is of course still an option. Now we have students with 1:1 technology, working on collaborative projects online, checking Google Classroom, and running their Chromebook batteries down just about as fast as you can imagine.

Food fuels the mind, and charging stations will fuel our students' learning.

Now that we have new technology to enhance learning, students also need the ability to use these items all day long. These 2 charging stations will help our library catch up to current technology trends and standards. If we want students to congregate in a healthy environment to work, study, and hang out with their friends, then we need to provide all the equipment necessary. A charging station placed amongst student seating will help kids worry a little less about losing power, and instead focus on their learning goals.
