We learn in a large school in the hills of Oakland. At 7:30 am, trains of buses arrive, and a previously silent campus starts to bustle with energy and life. Students are coming from all sorts of neighborhoods and backgrounds. They come to their biology class, a cramped hot room that was never intended to be a lab science class. Students share pencils and rely on a random selection of coloring utensils left over from the previous teacher. Our ideas are grand, and our motivation to become critical learners is key to success inside and outside of the classroom. All of our students have access to a free lunch and breakfast.
Your support would allow students to have a comfortable learning environment as we move into the hottest weeks of the school year.
Our classroom does not have AC, and we house the internet servers. As a result, we have a very hot classroom, and student learning can be challenging.
The beginning of the year and the end of the year tend to be quite hot and can severely hinder students' abilities to focus and learn. I do not want students to miss out on chances to learn because the classroom conditions are too extreme.
With an air conditioner, students will have a comfortable place where they can focus on learning and not how hot it is.
Overheated bodies make it hard to focus on learning. I would love to give student the best conditions, so they can do their very best!
Supplies like tissues and emergency snacks will encourage students to remain in class (instead of leaving to wash hands or blow noses) which will maximize learning time and brain function.
