I work in a very old building that does not have air conditioner and my classroom has an entire wall of big beautiful windows that let in light, but also let in heat. During the first week, I knew that my classroom got warm. I wondered how students are able to concentrate. I have seen that many teachers in my school have gotten portable air conditioners through DonorsChoose or even buying one with their own money, but being a first year teacher, I thought I could wait a year or two. However, over the past three weeks as I have readied my classroom, I have realized that the heat will be a significant barrier. Over the past week, even when it was only 77F outside and having black out shades, I watched my room get to 98F! 82% of my students are economically challenged and nearly half need additional educational support, so I think they deserve to be in a space that allows them to concentrate on what is important. They deserve to feel cared for and like they are not less than, not worthy of the "luxuries" other American children get- they deserve air conditioning.
