We are requesting an air filter for my sophomore science classroom. We have no windows in our classroom and the vents in our room are filled with dust. Every morning when I come into my room students ask me for paper towels to wipe the dust off of the tables that accumulated just over night! Many of my students have asthma or allergies that are irritated by the poor air quality in my room. Additionally the pipes in our room often smell of decaying rodents that have made a home in our building. We desperately need a quality air filter in our classroom so that we can all take a deep breath without feeling as if we are going to choke on the dust. Thank you.
