Cheers for Chairs!

My Students

My students are very resilient! Almost all of my students come from low-income households and are met every day with challenges ranging from broken families to difficult living conditions. Despite this, my students come to school excited to learn new things.

Our school borders a Native American Indian Reservation and 96% of our students are Navajo.

All of the students at our school receive free lunch and breakfast. The students are hard working, and despite many hardships, they have continued to make great gains academically. Our teachers are very dedicated and provide many of our much needed materials out-of-pocket.

My Project

Sometimes it is the simple things that mean the most! On the rare occasion that teachers are allotted money for classroom use, there are always many stipulations and guidelines as to how the money can be spent. Chairs are never an option. Our school has received old furniture from schools that have been torn down. We have mismatched chairs, and many are in disrepair.

The plastic chairs crack after years of use, and duck tape is used to protect the student's legs from injury.

I would love to replace the five chairs at our small-group reading table with matching, new chairs. I believe that these chairs will not only be safer, they will boost the morale and liveliness of our classroom.
