Chair in My Students Success

My students need new student chairs so they can learn in a safe environment.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My twenty-seven second grade students are all identified as coming from low-socio-economic backgrounds. 11% are identified as homeless and 95% are identified as English Language Learners. Many of my students are unfamiliar with the world outside of where they live, due to financial strains on their family.

Although there are many barriers my students must overcome, they are very eager and excited to learn and explore the world around them.

I want to enhance their excitement through the world of learning and exploration.

My Project

A student's safety in the classroom is always a priority for a teacher. The student chairs I am hoping to get funded will improve student safety in the classroom. Currently, my student chairs are old and missing various parts. I get worried every day my students come into the classroom and sit down on their current student desks. The new students chairs will allow my students to learn in a safe manner.

Many of my student who experience homelessness, have less than adequate places at home to do their homework, read a book, or eat dinner.

This type of environment allows my students to focus more on their negative environment than on their school work . The materials that I'm requesting will allow my students to be in a more comfortable and safe environment so they can succeed academically, socially, and emotionally.

By donating to our project, you will not only help to improve and increase student safety, but you will also help in improving the students classroom environment and overall academic success.
