I am a fifth-grade teacher at a local charter school. I have 23 students enrolled in my classroom, all of which have their own unique backgrounds, cultures, skills, and personalities. What makes our school and my classroom so unique is the fact that the parents are extremely involved (coming from a public school, I am not used to this!) They are appreciative of what we do in class and what their child has accomplished this year. My students come from many different family backgrounds--including many different incomes.
My students are dreamers, thinkers, talkers, and questioners.
My biggest goal, in being an educator, is providing the best learning environment possible for all 23 of my different learners. This school provides free and reduced-price lunches to students who qualify. Many of the students in my classroom qualifies for free or reduced-price lunch. This gives you an idea of what our budget consists of and what type of funds I have as a teacher. I have ELL, Gifted, IEP students, and everything in between.
Were you that student who just needed to move? Maybe you were a teacher and you've taught that student! Well, we all have them and that's okay! It is our job as an educator to find out how to best help these kiddos to learn the best that they can.
Wobble stools will help my kiddos that need that movement while learning!
Unfortunately, I need to ask for your help with this because I simply cannot afford them on my own. Please help me become a better teacher by providing my class with the essentials they need to be the best learner they can be!
