Our school is a wonderful place to learn and grow. We are a STEM-focused public charter school in one of the most economically challenged areas of Houston, Texas. We are a Title I school, and over 70% of our students receive free or reduced-price lunch. Our students rely on funding opportunities, like DonorsChoose, to receive the extra resources we need to extend our learning.
My students face many obstacles daily.
Many of our families have to worry about where their next meal will come from and how to pay their rent. That's why the time my students spend with me and what I am able to provide is so very important for their growth! I want to ensure that my students receive the same opportunities as students in other more affluent schools receive.
Our engineering studies always start off with a great story book. My students absolutely love it when I read to them. They want to be close enough to see the pictures, as I read, so as of right now, they sit on the floor. They are willing to endure the discomfort so that they can form a circle and listen intently. I would like to provide them with a soft seat so that we can still keep the closeness of our story circle while keeping them comfortable and off the floor.
