I was just given a fabulous idea from our librarian. Her idea is to take my Geek Squad down to the local nursing home and help the residents out with their technology needs. I think this idea has amazing potential to show the students that action isn’t always about raising money. I have made helping teacher part of the Geek Squad from the very beginning. This is just another avenue for the students to help others.
I immediately went to a teacher on staff whose mother is at this residence and her reaction was, “that is perfect!” So she is going to give me the contact information for a member of the staff at the residence. Then I will get organizing! This could even become a regular event in either Geek Squad or it could become its own club.
I am very excited to see what this idea will develop into!
