My school is a public school serving the West side of Chicago. My students are predominantly African American and are driven to succeed and become college graduates. A mission of urban education is to empower youth to thrive in college and careers by giving them access to quality resources and an innovative teaching staff.
This is also an important year for my junior students and they are constantly reminded that the SAT test is approaching quickly.
There is very little time for my students to waste because they are working hard to improve their GPAs and SAT scores. Our students are hardworking and motivated to grow each day!
Students at my school have very few common spaces and with a need for a community collaboration room, this project is vital. Our students and staff deserve a room where there's a place to sit and sip (tea, hot chocolate, coffee for staff, etc). I think this project of 2 couches, 2 pillows, a Keurig coffee maker and labels to keep everything organized is very necessary.
At our school, the community is entrusting the school staff to build relationships with students that create positive outcomes and we need a space to do this.
This collaborative space will not only be comfy, but will look nice and create more productivity for staff and students.
