I am a sixth grade Language Arts teacher at a middle school located on the southwest side of Chicago. The student body is approximately 96% percent Hispanic and about 98% percent are classified as low income students. I teach students that have individualized education plans and students that are English Language Learners.
My students are amazing!
Despite having to face and overcome some unimaginable circumstances, they persevere and inspire those around them. They exceed expectations and are the future leaders, activists, engineers, teachers, doctors, lawyers, police officers, nurses, artists, computer programmers, etc. of Chicago and beyond.
My students need a place to store their belongings. They are all required to use a large binder and are not permitted to carry backpacks. Their binders and other school supplies can take up quite a bit of table space, which reduces the amount of working space they have to complete classwork and projects.
By donating to this project, you will help in creating more space for learning and collaboration to occur.
Their tables will be less cluttered and they won't need to place their belonging on the floor.
This will also be beneficial for students who can become easily distracted because they can store materials they need for other classes in the chair pocket and only focus on what they need for Language Arts class.
I'll be able to easily have students work on collaborative projects and use laptops or Chrome books without the clutter or need to pile all their belongings in another area in the classroom.
Thank you for helping me clear the clutter and make space for learning!
