My school sits in the middle of a low-income neighborhood in Florida. Close to 100% of our students receive free or reduced-price lunch and about twenty percent of students live in one of the four shelters around our school. Our school does an excellent job of helping those students fit in even though the mobility rate is very high.
I believe every child can achieve the impossible.
My students have big dreams and I try every day to help them get closer to achieving them.
When it comes to science, it is different than any other subject. In science, you get to learn by exploring nature, doing science labs, and experimenting with many different things. Being able to explore in these ways requires the right equipment.
Trying to do science labs and experiments on a traditional desk are somewhat difficult because of the size of the desk and the possibility of the desk separating and materials falling.
If my students were able to have tables instead of a desk, they would be able to explore science comfortably with the much-needed space that tables give. The tables would also make our classroom look and feel like a real science classroom.
