Teacher Delivers on Promise

Challenge Accepted, Met, Rewarded

Image of Issabella's MovieAkron Public Schools has some immensely creative and motivated library techs finding ways to engage our students. During library time, we ask our students to work on their keyboarding skills -- 30 minutes a week.

Tara Davis, at Betty Jane CLC, created a challenge for the students during remote learning.

Any student in grades that 2-5 who averaged 30 minutes of practicing keyboarding over five weeks is entered into a drawing. The top two finishers receive a box of treats ... delivered contact-free, of course.  Fifth-grader Issabella landed first place and was excited to open the gift package at home with her family.

Included in the reward box was a home-made T-shirt created by Ms. Davis in her own, at-home Makerspace.

Megan A. Mannion, library media/SEL learning specialist for APS tells us, "We are so thankful for Ms. Davis' creativity and motivation to keep students engaged! I know several other technicians are doing similar things -- always happy to share good news."
