Ms. Harris from Miramar FL is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Creative Seating for Creative Students

My students need flexible seating and these Calico Adjustable Desks will provide a wonderful learning environment for my students.

My Students

I'm sure every teacher believes that their students are special or brilliant or any other word that is synonymous with amazing, so I won't tell you that they're amazingly special (even though they are).

What I will say is that my students are obsessively inquisitive and relentless in their pursuit of answers.

They have an uncommon hope in people and are deeply moved by experiences. Their ability to see the world clearly, identify problems and create practical solutions not only makes me breathe easier but provides me with a hope for the future.

My Project

Students today are not only interacting with each other in different ways, but they are interacting with the world around them in new ways. Students are also in turn, learning in ways like never before. Schools and classrooms should, therefore, keep pace with the students. I would like to create a classroom environment where students can choose their seating and I'd first like to start by focusing on creating a section in my classroom with high seating using these adjustable desks.

Students thrive when they take ownership of their own learning and these desks will help students to choose not only where they'd like to learn in the classroom but influence how.

Having a section where students can choose to stand or use tables that are higher than the traditional desk, will present them with options. These options will allow them to take more ownership of their learning which will then translate in their level of productivity and engagement.
