Mr. Walker from Memphis TN is requesting Sports & Exercise Equipment through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Desks for Kids

My students need 15 desks because of the limited space to move around the classroom. Right now, we have large tables.

My Students

Our school serves students in grades 9th-12th and provides rigorous academics, fantastic teachers and a safe learning environment. As a result, we've been able to raise the school scores and get out of the bottom ten lowest performing schools in the district. Our goal is to continue this growth every year. Many of our students come from bilingual households and receive free or reduced lunch. Our mission is to prepare our students for success in college and careers, and our alumni have gone on to schools such as Lane College, Christian Brothers University and Rhodes College.

My Project

My students will be able to utilize a desk independently with these new desks and have room to navigate around the classroom. This will increase instruction as well as improve student engagement. A lot of my students have trouble seeing the board and have to move their seats or twist their body to see.

Students will also be able to have more materials on their desk and not have to hold things in their laps.

Having actual desks in the classroom will improve their educational experience and help them with their future goals of learning English. This will be a great opportunity for my students.
