Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My school is located in a low-income neighborhood with scholars from diverse backgrounds. Over 75% of the population qualifies for free school meals.

Despite socioeconomic disadvantages, our melting pot of scholars possess a positive outlook on learning.

Each child is unique and deserve quality resources and experiences that will shape their future.Being that we are a Title I school however, it’s often a challenge to find funding to purchase materials and resources. Basic classroom supplies and technology are in high demand in our school and our students deserve to experience high quality education and resources.

My Project

I am a 5th grade teacher in a Title I school. My classroom is full of diverse learners some with special needs, who have different learning styles.

Our classroom should reflect and support our diverse scholars.

With flexible seating, our furniture will also be diverse! Wobble stools and Swivel chairs will allow scholars to choose which seat represents them. Scholars will have options that will allow them to feel included and comfortable throughout the day.

Scholars will be empowered to choose which seating best suits their individual needs, and look forward to learning throughout the day. With your generous donation, scholars will be able to feel included within our classroom community.
