Mx. Taylor from Philadelphia PA is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Desk Security

Help me give my students a safe place to keep their belongings. Because we switch for half of the day, supplies, books, and other things have gone missing. I need my students to feel safe in their classrooms.

My Students

Students from the North Philly area. Mostly Black students and mostly low income. Mostly curious, but are apprehensive about math and science learning and instruction. My students are energetic, strong, possess multiple intelligences. Some goals for these students are: understanding ways of incorrect thinking, understanding a little about how the brain learns, creating a loving and cooperative environment, developing confidence in their math and science skills, and learning how they already do math and science in their everyday lives to survive.

My Project

These materials are integral in allowing students to believe and feel that their classroom environment is a safe one. Sharing desks with other students can be hard, but it becomes an ultimate challenge when one's stuff is being stolen or misplaced.

With these seat backs for holding belongings, students will no longer need to share desks, eradicating the initial cause of the issue!

These will allow for students to use the back of their chairs as individual desks to hold everything they may need for the day. This will also allow students to keep things in their seat backs over night or throughout the week while still feeling safe.
