My Students

I'm returning to the first school where I taught because I loved the students and their community so much. The students I serve live in a rural setting and come from a school district without much funding for things like technology in the classroom. None of the PreK-5 students have any technology accessible to the students in their classroom. These kids are eager to learn, but are missing out on a core component of what it is to be a 21st century learner. Please help us to become more well-rounded scholars!

My Project

We would love to transform our classroom from a traditional class full of desks and chairs to one where the students get to choose their alternative seating. We have already cleaned out our classroom and are sitting on the floor. Children need to be able to move their bodies throughout the day to optimize learning. We need to have these cushions to help our bodies feel comfortable so our minds can work at the optimal level while learning all about math! This type of seating is especially beneficial to children that ADD or ADHD as well as just a "typical" high energy child who needs a lot of movement throughout the day. Your generosity would mean the world to us!
