My Students

My students come from a low-income, high poverty school district. Although my students may face many challenges in and out of the classroom, they come to school everyday with a smile on their face ready to learn. I feel it is my responsibility as their teacher to provide them with the tools they need to be successful lifelong learners. These students are our future and deserve to receive the best education possible, even the smallest donation will help make a difference.

My Project

These stools will make a difference in my students learning by providing them with an alternate place to sit other than their desk. These stools will be placed around my back table and will help make an alternate seating area in the classroom.

These stools will allow me to make my classroom a comfortable place for my students to learn.

These stools are also very portable, they are light weight and students will be able to move them to any working area in the classroom. By allowing the students to choose where they sit they take more ownership in their choices and their learning.
