My Students

My students are hard working students that could use a little extra help in life. Living in an urban setting can sometimes be difficult and yet each day my students show up ready to learn. Students are hungry for learning and want to strive to do their best.

I want to create experiences in my classroom that the children can take part in, that will give them many advantages as they leave 3rd grade getting ready for 4th grade and beyond.

My Project

Having couches and chairs for the students to use in the classroom will make the classroom feel more inviting and will help facilitate learning. Making learning feel relaxed can improve the chances that the students will remain enagaed in the learning process.

Flexible seating in the classroom will create an environment that is welcoming to the children.

Being able to sit in seats that are not the traditional desks and chairs is something that every child will enjoy while watching the learning process is what I will enjoy. Please consider helping to fund this project. The classroom environment can be the best thing in each child's day.
