I'm a Special Education resource room teacher in New York who teaches a group of 35 students with disabilities in first through eighth grades. My school is a Title I school, and approximately 97% of its students receive free lunch.
Throughout the school day, I pick up students and bring them to the resource room for small group academic intervention in reading, writing, and math.
I teach six year olds through thirteen year olds, both tiny students and students who are taller than me!
While the resource room has tables for the students to work at, they are too low to comfortably work at for the majority of my students! Additionally, these tables are very wobbly from years of use and could use replacing.
I am requesting five classroom tables for my students to sit at. All of these tables have adjustable legs, so some will be set to a lower height to accommodate my younger students and some will be set to a taller height to accommodate my older students.
No child should be without a proper desk to work at in school.
A desk is a school supply even more basic than pencils and paper!
By helping to place new tables into my classroom, you will be providing students with one of the most basic classroom needs I can think of. You will also help to minimize the distraction and discomfort caused when elementary and middle school students sit at wobbly tables or tables that are at an inappropriate height. Now all of their focus can be on learning!
DonorsChoose makes it easy for anyone to help a classroom in need. Public school teachers from every corner of America create classroom project requests, and you can give any amount to the project that inspires you.
