My Students

My third-grade class consists of 22 students. There is a wide array of students eager to learn in our classroom. All of the students in our school receive free breakfast and lunch thanks to a grant. For some of our students, these are the only decent meals they receive.

I want to give my students the tools they need to be successful inside and outside of the classroom.

My job is to inspire their minds to think critically and outside the box. I want to create a classroom environment conducive to learning. Thank you for supporting our class!

My Project

Please help give my students some new desks. Our school is very old, and our current desks are in terrible shape. Many have permanent stains, are wobbly, and outdated. They aren’t very conducive to group work either. I would like to bring them up to the current century.

These flexible desks will allow students to easily move around the classroom to collaborate with fellow students throughout the school day.

These desks will help create a more positive environment for the students. When students are comfortable, they will be able to learn better. They can be used with bouncy seats and wobble stools for my more wiggly learners as well. Please help update our room! Thanks!
