Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My students attend school in one of the poorest cities in California. My students live in Huron, CA a high poverty community. Our students are all English Language Learners, receive free lunch, and majority of them have parents who work in the agriculture fields.

Ninety-nine percent of out students qualify for free or reduced lunch.

The population is comprised on 96.1% Hispanic, 2.7% Asian, and 0.6% Black and White. Many students live in poor conditions and others surrounded/affected by gang violence that occurs in the city and/or at home. Our school is their safe place.

My Project

My students need flexible seating options to help them become more engage in their learning proccess. My students work best in a calm environment with minimal distractions and these seating options will help create that. With traditional seating, I have students getting up out of their chairs because they're uncomfortable.

These seating options would help make the world of the difference in my classroom, and in my students love for learning.

If funded, the wobble chairs will help minimize distractions in my classroom and promote student productivity. My students LOVE reading, and the couch would be used in my library to allow students to read comfortably. It would also be an outlet for students that are having a difficult time working in traditional seating. The storage bench would be used to store student materials to help our transition to a full flexible seating classroom.
