Ms. Tucker from Oakboro NC is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Deskless Classroom

My students need tall tables to allow them to stand, or armchairs to allow them to relax while still working on challenging material.

My Students

My middle school students are the inaugural class of our brand new STEM school. As the first STEM school in rural Stanly County, I am excited to provide my 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students the opportunity to learn in a challenging, exciting, stimulating, and interesting atmosphere.

My students will be experiencing Language Arts through engaging, student-centered lessons and projects.

These special students will also be learning critical thinking and problem-solving skills while solving "PBLs" or problem-based learning situations that mimic real-world obstacles.

My Project

I am an ELA teacher at a STEM school. I would like to bring a coffee style seating environment to my classroom... that would involve no conventional desks.

I want to have a non-desk environment so that my students don't feel like they are in a normal classroom, this would have options for my students to either stand up or relax.

I would like to step outside of the normal "bean bags and cushions." Since Starbucks is my favorite "relaxing" place to go when I plan, I want to have a Starbucks style seating arrangement that offers a comfortable, relaxed atmosphere; armchairs, coffee tables, bar chairs, and cafe tables.

I have students that enjoy moving all over the classroom, and this would give them that opportunity to move without bothering anyone.
