My Students

My students walk into school every day with a desire to learn, despite starting each day behind the average child. Our area of reach has a high rate of drug usage. We also experience a high rate of poverty.

Despite this, my students are fighting to become engineers, doctors, teachers, lawyers, and politicians.

They are persevering through their circumstance to make these dreams a reality, and they do so with the biggest hearts and the most optimism I've ever seen.

My Project

I have been lucky enough to receive some flexible seating from a previous project. My students have felt the immediate impact from just a few stools and stability balls. They love to bounce and lean in their seats during our lessons. The chairs provided by the schools make this dangerous and impractical, and I do not have enough seating for every student who wants to move.

Having the ability to move around in their seats makes the biggest difference.

Far too often my students feel the need to move, but doing so is a distraction for the other students. If they bounce and move in the squeaky school chairs, others aren't focused. If they don't move, they're not focused. It's a no win situation.

Having flexible seating allows my students to discreetly move, and will allow everyone to stay focused and engaged.
