My students walk into my classroom full of curiosity and a desire to learn. They are at the age of believing they can do anything and as their teacher I want to encourage them to keep believing that! At our school, we also mainstream deaf and hard of hearing students as well. As a teacher in a low-income school district, my students face several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite all these challenges they face, I am trying to keep things simple and provide my students with creative and meaningful learning environment. I work hard to ensure that all my students will receive the education, resources and opportunities that they need to succeed.
We currently have desks but the desire to have flexibility in arranging desks for cooperative groups and partner work is needed.
Currently, I have 28 mismatched very big desks that do not allow for easy access or movement in the classroom and unfortunately we do not have extra funding for new desks in our second grade classroom.
The 24 open front desks that I have selected for my 2nd grade classroom will only be half of what my classroom needs but it will help give the students in my class more flexibility and ability to physically move around the classroom. Currently with the mismatched and big desks, students can not move freely around the classroom.
The donation of these 24 desks will also help our physical space for students to easily move the desks and be engaged in collaborative learning in both partner and group work.
Currently the students have a hard time moving the big desks and it is quite disruptive to others who are doing independent learning.
