Fantastic Fans

My students need tower fans to keep them cool and focused on their work!

My Students

I am currently a special education teacher in a high needs area. My students are learning disabled & emotionally disturbed. Our classroom is located in an inlet within our school building. Even with the windows wide open we do not receive so much as a breeze. My pupils would benefit from fans.

My students work hard and often support their mothers and fathers by running household errands and watching younger siblings.

Unfortunately, another thing on top of their special education classification, is that my students have in common is that their families are struggling financially. Within my school the majority of the students qualify for the state's free or reduced meal program. Some students even reside in shelters. Due to the budget cuts schools are facing, teachers in my school are no longer able to personally give each student the resources they desire. Supplying my students/classroom with these cooling fans would be a small step, but it would give us one less obstacle to overcome.

My Project

As part of the new core standards, students are required to understand the many ideas and concepts from many areas of content and application. My classroom needs fans to keep the students cool and focused on their work. On warm days it is difficult for them to be motivated on their work and assignments due to the heat. Many say "I went to school without air conditioners/fans" but we must remember that due to global warming this heat isn't the same kind that we all experience in our school days.

Supplying my Special Ed.

classes with cooling fans would give us more time to experience more hands on opportunities and focus on our assigned tasks. Your help is desperately needed to help our room function properly. Students and myself all depend on proper conditions for our class to run well. This can only happen with your aid. Please help us, every little bit helps!
