Mrs. Hanssen from Eldridge IA is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Alternative Seating

My students need an active learning classroom to prepare them for the future!

My Students

The age group of the students that I interact with range from 14 to 21 years of age and struggle with reading, comprehension, writing, and math skills.

"The biggest 'game-changer' in education is thinking differently about education and understanding that all people need different things to succeed." -George Couros

Once my students graduate from high school, they will go straight to the work force. Majority of my students come from families that live in poverty and who struggle with the day to day responsibilities of being able to pay bills, drive a car with insurance, and put food on their table.

My Project

Education has changed over the years, therefore classrooms need to change. By asking for the following items, I am on my way to making this change to better my students for their future.

The items that have been saved for the ALTERNATIVE SEATING project will support the need for classroom environments to change in order to accommodate to the skills that the 21st Century demands.

This includes core academics, critical thinking, problem-solving, social/emotional development, life and career skills, information media and technology skills that support relationships for effective learning. The items that have been requested would support my students in being mobile in a classroom setting or participating in centers.
