Classroom Furniture for a NEW Teacher in Self-Contained SpEd
Help me give my students access to their teachers. We have new tables, but no chairs that are "adult" sized to go at them. We usually have to cut lessons shorts because we become uncomfortable in tiny chairs.
My students are all between the ages of 8-12 years old with IQs below 70. I love teaching my students and observing their growth, as they are in a self-contained, severe/profound setting. To grant some perspective, last year our school implemented a program known as the Community Eligibility Provision which allows each student to eat a healthy breakfast and lunch for free without having to complete any meal applications. This provision was passed by Congress as part of the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act.
Why do we need new teacher, appropriate chairs? We were recently able to get new tables and student sized chairs for our class. However, the chairs are tiny for the students we teach. I selected 2 chairs to go at our "centers" and i selected a more quality chair for one of the classroom parapros. I feel that SpEd classes like mine usually get second hand classroom furniture and I want my students to know what its like to be in a class with new, up to date, stuff.
I want to use the Quill Brand Mesh and Fabric Task chairs to go at two of my horseshoe tables, i think their ability to lower will greatly make things more accommodating.
We are only afforded so much education funding every school year, since that my school is in such a low SES area, i buy all of my students school supplies. All of my funding goes to this. I have a new parapro and she is learning the ropes, as a am i, and i want her to have a decent "teacher chair" to make her day that much better. That is why i chose the Quill Brand Telford II Luxura for her.
None of the chairs I selected are the TOP quality, but for us, they will be.
