Impact to My Classroom

# of Students Impacted: 112

This booster allowed me to better connect with my students while we were under Covid shut down. This booster provided for faster internet speed and fewer "drops".

 

Original Grant Overview

Goal

Teach my students virtually. 

 

What will be done with my students

My students will be learning virtually for the remainder of the school year. I will be teaching them virtually and this assistance will help me pay for things for my virtual classroom that are not, will not or have not been provided to me by the Walton County School District. These funds will be used to reimburse me for past purchases or pay for future purchases for my virtual classroom. 

 

Benefits to my students

With increased internet traffic since virtual learning began, my online activity has increased, while my networking speed has decreased. I have had Zoom calls dropped, lesson plans and Power Points stuck in internet limbo, and slow downloads of student work. According to the NY Times Wirecutter test lab, this WiFi booster offers the best boost on a budget, increasing productivity and decreasing frustration for the remainder of the school year.

I will also be giving rewards to my students who have read over one million words this year. We had planned to do a field trip to the library and a picnic to recognize them, so while a bookmark and certificate pales in comparison to a field trip, it is something I can do to recognize their accomplishment.
