- Schedule time in a computer lab (of course the most organized person in the building had already booked out the year before school even began, leaving the rest to fight for openings).
- Plan a time in the computer lab, only to find out that your students were not quite ready to use the lab on the day you had it reserved (or an impromptu fire drill chewed up 20 minutes of your lab time).

school laptops often made it
difficult to efficiently type.
- Waste five minutes walking to a computer lab, another seven logging in to the computers, and the last two encouraging students to save their work and log off.
- Wait for somebody to physically arrive at your building to solve some tech problems they can now assess and fix virtually.
- Await the use of a C.o.W (laptop cart on wheels), only for some of the computers to arrive with missing keyboard keys, interesting words spelled with re-arranged keyboard keys from a creative student, dead batteries, or entirely dead laptops, meaning some of your kids had nothing to work on.
In the past few weeks I have had several conversations in which educators have expressed their gratitude for the tools our students and staff have access to across Waukesha.
