Benchmark of Success

My students need these bench frames to get hands-on and learn basic carpentry and to beautify our school grounds.

My Students

My students are inner city students who have special needs and wonderful personalities. They are eager to learn but lack many resources necessary to make them prepared for a twenty-first century education and business world. These students need assistance to build life and job skills as well as ways to express their knowledge outside of textbooks and tests. The students have asked for the ability to get hands-on with our assignments and this is one method they want to explore further.

My Project

These bench frames will give students several opportunities. First, they will get to learn about basic carpentry. Second, they will get to express themselves artistically by decorating the benches. Third, we will have a nice outdoor learning environment for students to work while they complete hands-on activities and other outdoor activities related to academics. Many inner-city students do not get the opportunity to appreciate the outdoors and this will enable them to appreciate nature, the outdoors and create a green learning environment during warm weather. We are also planning to share our benches with the school so that other classes can benefit from them as well.
