My Students

Our school is located in a high poverty area. The majority of my students come from low income families. My classroom is made up of a very diverse group of students. My students come from all different backgrounds and cultures. They also have very diverse abilities, skills, and strengths.

They are a fun-loving, hardworking group of students who are eager to learn and be successful.

I push my students to not only do the best work they can do, but to be the best people they can be, as well.

My Project

My students need kid-friendly stools, stability balls, wobble seats and bean bag chairs to help get their wiggles out and be ready to learn!

When children are comfortable in their learning environment they are more likely to be engaged, make academic gains and overall be more successful.

These materials will be life changing for all of the students in the class, however, they will be extremely beneficial for a few students who have special needs.

Everyone gets tired of sitting in a hard chair all day long! Help make my students feel more comfortable while learning and growing by donating to this project. This is a fantastic group of students who deserve to express their creativity in a fun way! Please consider donating to this project-we really appreciate it!
