My Students

My students are mostly from immigrant families and live in an urban area. They are faced with many challenges that they have to overcome on a daily basis, including difficult living situations, not enough money for food, and learning difficulties.

Dealing with all of this at such a young age is such a huge weight on their shoulders.

I believe in teaching the whole child and helping them deal with emotional and academic struggles and triumphs. I want to be able to provide my students a positive and comfortable environment where they can work to their greatest potential. I believe education can change the world, and my hope is for myself and my students to make an amazing change in this world. I have high hopes for all of my students and I know DonorsChoose.org can help us to achieve our biggest dreams!

My Project

I believe that students should have the right to learn in any way they choose as long as they are successful. Donorschoose, as well as my own money, has been able to provide my students and I with many different seating options, including Hokki Stools, Wobble Cushions, a Bean Bag Chair, and a Cube Chair.

I have noticed that my students are more successful and engaged when they are able to sit in a place that allows them to be comfortable.

One seating option that has truly changed our classroom environment is the Comfy Floor Seats from Lakeshore Learning's Flex-Space Line for our low table. These seats can be adjusted to many different angles and can also be stored completely flat, which is useful in a classroom where we need to utilize every nook and cranny! Our low table has two of these seats right now, and pillows, but the pillows have gotten dirty and are not as functional and comfortable. We would love to have two more comfy floor seats to complete our floor table seating.

My students LOVE flexible seating and we would really appreciate it if you could help us get some more options to help us grow and learn!
