"Do we have to leave?" Our students are funny, compassionate, and imaginative children that enjoy exploring new skills and developing their literacy skills. They attend an elementary school in the Kensington section of Northern Philadelphia.
The room buzzes throughout the day as they laugh, sing, and share with their peers.
They are a thoughtful, loving, and hardworking bunch, excited to learn and grow. While they are motivated by their dreams and engaged by the opportunities presented to them, due to economic challenges within the community, school, and district, our resources are limited. As their teacher, I struggle to provide sufficient and enriching supplies that will support holistic learning. However, at our school, we are resourceful and do with what we have, but our students deserve and require more.
During the late Spring, summer months, and long into Fall our classroom gets really hot and stuffy. The environment is unbearable without quality fans and airflow in the classroom. We are using two fans that we have salvaged, but given their condition, they do not provide much solace during the extreme heat.
In order to promote and maintain student success, the classroom needs to be a comfortable setting.
Imagine how difficult it is for our students to focus and actively engage in sweltering heat. By providing these fans, their presence will help reduce physical discomfort in the classroom for both students and teachers.
