Ms. Guillen from Waco TX is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Cozy Classroom

Help me give my students a cozy classroom and a home away from home. I would love to continue to provide my students with a comfortable seating where a group can sit together at their station.

My Students

I work in a high poverty district where 90.95% of our students are economically disadvantaged. With this said, we have a high attendance rate at our school, 95%. Our students come to school daily ready to learn and grow. They are very resilient students. My personal goal is to provide my students with a home away from home. A place they can take great pride in. Please help me provide my classroom with the materials needed to complete our home away from home.

My Project

The stools will provide an area for students to sit comfortably while working at the teacher table as well as the computer station. We currently have large chairs that take up too much space and do not allow all students to sit comfortably. The stools will allow 5 students to sit well at the computer station and 5 to sit at the teacher table. Last year some students would have to stand or share a seat from all of them to be able to fit. I would love to be able to provide seating for these stations.

The rugs will provide a cozy area for the students to sit while note taking, whole group work, or reading at the library area.

I would love my students to have a comfortable rug to sit on. This way they will not have to sit on the tile flooring. My ultimate goal is to provide a cozy home away from home where my students are able to flourish.
