Computer Lab - Mrs. Chaskey
I'm Mrs. Chaskey, a.k.a. "The Computer Lab Lady". This is my 8th year at Webster and my 15th year as a Computer Lab EA in WSD3. We cover quite a variety of things in the lab. I've set up links to some of the frequently used sites so your students can explore their favorite sites to their heart’s content. I hope you and your students enjoy exploring these sites after school and over the school breaks.
