My Students

As a teacher in a majority low-income school, my students are faced with academic and social challenges both in and out of the classroom. At times, they cannot get their basic needs met. This presents an even bigger obstacle for students to achieve success in the classroom. Although they face many challenges, I provide my students with creative, meaningful, and engaging learning experiences differentiated to meet their academic and social needs.

My students come to school to work hard and to be the best they can be.

I am fortunate to work with these special students each and every day. I teach wonderful students who truly love to learn and explore the world around them. Every day is a new adventure in our classroom. However, our library needs a boost . We are confined by our limited resources to support our students especially in the classroom library atmosphere. Please support us in creating a friendly, comfortable place to learn for each child in my classroom.

My Project

A donation to this project will help students with attention and focus concerns. Education is changing every day, as are the interests of my students. The Kore Wobble seat will be used for independent reading, or as an incentive for ALL students. The Big Joe Bean Bag Chair will make it hard to put a book down. Lastly, the Moonlight Lamp will help obtain the comfort level a child needs to read. A dream I have for my students, is to lose oneself in a good book. Having the cozy seat options and gentle lighting will encourage relaxation and provide an ideal atmosphere. I ask you, is there anything better?

Ultimately, this donation will hold student interest and foster their academic achievement in the area of reading.

Using these supplies in our classroom library will improve the atmosphere for the better, my students will be able to increase their attention and focus while reaching academic success daily.
