Mrs. Martin from Orange TX is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Building and Learning Beyond Harvey

My students need 2 more tables in our classroom to create adequate seating room. Also I want my students to work with a Pi-Top computer set to add a new dimension to our STEM curriculum.

My Students

We are a mostly rural area that was heavily affected by Hurricane Harvey. Over 60% of our students and staff had damage to their homes from Harvey; some of those were still recovering from a flood from a dam release that had happened in March of 2016. Our students are strong and want to find their new "normal."

176 days after the first day of school, we finally started school on our own campus.

Four of the six campuses in our district were damaged by flood water. We have been sharing a campus with another junior high and a high school since we began. Once again, we will be starting a school year under construction.

My Project

The round activity tables will help with the seating in the classroom and give more opportunities for discussion and problem-solving. Adding two more tables to the classroom allows for more flexible group collaborations.

Pi- Top Make Your Own Computer kit will give students a chance to see coding in action with immediate tangible results.

The kit will extend the lessons in robotics and other STEM activities because of the opportunity for a hands-on approach to coding and creating.

Having more flexible seating along with more activities will allow for more one-on-one time for the students and the activities. Harvey did a number on us last year - our homes and our schools. We are working hard to help our students to continue to learn and grow in what we now know as our "new normal."
