My Students

My high school students come from diverse backgrounds. They come from different cultures and various incomes. In comparison with neighboring school districts, our district is lacking resources. This often makes the students feel inferior in their ability to be successful. Our socioeconomic status is very low, more than 70% of our students are eligible for free and reduced lunch.

It is my top priority to provide them with the least restrictive environment, for them to feel safe, and be confident in their abilities.

We spend most of our class time collaborating in small groups, exploring new topics, and creating projects together. I want my students to have any resource they may need, to ensure that they are productive and feel comfortable sharing information with each other.

My Project

Due to lack of space, I am currently teaching in a science lab.

We are having to use the tall lab tables for work space and are lacking the appropriate seating.

The lab stools are very uncomfortable and several are broken. Students are constantly shuffling chairs form table to table, undoing any order the class may have had.

I want my students to be comfortable so that they are not squirming and can focus more on the task at hand. The rolling stools will help me accomplish this! The students would be thrilled and so grateful if I can make this happen!
