My Students

My students are amazing! Teaching at a low-income school has given me such great insight into the lives of some incredible individuals.

Many of my students come from broken homes and have taken on some great responsibilities.

They take care of siblings, homes, and schoolwork all on their own. For some, it breaks them down. For others, it brings them to their full potential. I have seen some students give when they have little. I have also seen many struggle through issues that many would shriek under. But through it all, they show up and do what they can to succeed.

My Project

In my classroom we have flexible seating. I love it and the students enjoy trying different areas of the classroom. One section of my classroom is a table of stools. All of these stools were found at yard sales or donated.

Middle schoolers are rough on furniture.

My stools are all made of wood and after just two years of use they have been broken or torn.

I really want to keep this section of flexible seating as it is the most popular and most used area of the room. I need furniture that will withstand the wiles of a middle schooler.

These metal stools will supply the much needed strength to withstand the energy and attitudes of my busy students.

I also have many wiggly students who need help staying at their seats and giving them a yoga ball should do the trick by giving them a chance to wiggle but stay at their tables.
