Living in Southwest Texas, it can get very hot! Our temperatures average at about 100-105 degrees in the spring and summer months. My students need a portable air conditioner that will help keep our classroom cool and comfortable. Our school is 94 years old and runs on an evaporator cooler which means that sometimes it is difficult for my fifth graders to get comfortable enough to be able to focus on instruction. A portable air conditioner will help keep our classroom cool and comfortable and create a perfect environment for learning. In fifth grade, we are working on math, reading, science and social studies, as well as life skills. It is extremely hot and difficult for my kids to focus in such a hot classroom and be successful in their overall education. Giving them a portable air conditioner will give them the tools necessary to work and focus on the task at hand.
