Mrs. Hill from Tecumseh OK is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Good-Bye Desk, Hello Freedom!

My students need more tables in our classroom so that we can have more space to work!

My Students

I teach in a school that has 97% of its students on free and reduced price lunch. I have a sensational group of 25 third graders this year. We are from a low-income community, so most of our supplies come from out of my pocket. I am more than happy to give, but on a teacher's salary, there are some things that I just cannot afford.

We are a close-knit family, and we love each other; we love experiencing new things, and we love to learn!

We are a very diverse classroom when it comes to our needs. My goal is to find every student's needs and meet those needs, and, to accomplish that, I need your help!

My Project

I have a very diverse group of kiddos. Therefore, I have tried to make sure everyone's needs are met. We have wiggle seats, bicycle pedals, cushions for floor seating, stools, and regular chairs. This works very well for my dynamic classroom! The problem, however, is that I do not have enough tables, so some of my students are restricted to desks. I am using this project to get more tables!

I feel that every student should have the opportunity to have alternate seating, and the freedom to move while they learn!

So, I am trying to move towards a table only classroom so that every student has the same type of work space and has the opportunity to change the type of seat they're using that day based on their needs! I want every student to be as comfortable as possible in my class and be able to learn while they sit, stand, wiggle, kneel, or whatever they may choose!
