Mrs. Medley from Union Mills IN is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Functional Furniture and Supplies Needed

My students need comfortable seating, a rug, and privacy partitions for the classroom to ensure a welcoming space and privacy while working on their daily activities.

My Students

"A good teacher is like a candle; it consumes itself to light the way for others." Each and every day, I strive to give my personal best to my class. I teach with enthusiasm and encourage my students to take risks. I look for ways to help my kids, and hope these items I'm requesting will do that.

Currently, I have 26 students on my class list who range in ability.

We are located in a small farm town in a K-12 building, where everyone knows one another. Our school is smaller in size, but full of spirit and school pride. I would love to provide my class of students with new materials and furniture to help them have a memorable school year. The furniture and items that I have chosen will attract all types of learners, and I hope my future students will enjoy these items as well. For example, new seating options will greatly attract a variety of students and will provide more comfort while learning. We are also in need of new privacy partitions, to help keep wandering eyes off of others' work. These also are extremely helpful for my ADD/ADHD students who crave a distraction free area from others.

My Project

Many of these items will be used daily during our reading instruction. Students will gather on the carpet for a whole group instruction, and then break off into small groups during centers time. It is then that the students will use the variety of seating that I have chosen for the room. I also added a couple of stool-like chairs that are of great benefit to students with ADD/ADHD. I feel by having these seats to offer to those who are struggling could be the missing piece to their success. The privacy partitions for desks will help create a distraction free work space so that students cannot peek at their neighbor's work or interrupt their learning.

This project means a lot to me, because I know just how important it is for students to have functional furniture and supplies to help accommodate their learning.

Imagine sitting on a hard surfaced chair day in and day out, yearning for a softer seat, or wanting privacy while you work in a classroom of 26+ students. These supplies and items will help each of these students daily. I thank you so very much for your consideration and help; its donor's like you who help classrooms be successful!
