My students are creative learners who have the ability to tackle any problem put before them. When shown that they can do the math before them, they strive. I absolutely love getting to see their excitement when they solve a difficult problem or learn a skill that they didn’t believe they could accomplish. All that is needed for my students to achieve is for people to believe in them rather than make assumptions about what and who they think these kids are and what they can accomplish.
Help me give my students a comfortable place to sit in my classroom by donating tables and chairs. My students currently use individual desks. These are very difficult to use because many high school students are unable to fit in them comfortably. My students need a place where they can collaborate with their peers. They also need a place where they can store needed materials without dropping them on the floor due to lack of space. If given better seating, it is my belief that my students will feel more comfortable and will be better able to focus on the work before them.
