My Students

Over 90% of our students receive free or reduced-priced lunch. More than 97% of our students are Hispanic and from a traditionally underserved population in San Antonio. Students have scored average to above average in standardized testing despite having limited exposure to technology at home.

Students do struggle to relate to their peers in better funded schools due to limited exposure to interactive technology and flexible seating that allows them to successfully collaborate during group activities and classroom lessons.

Our kids deserve to learn in a manner that reaches all of them! Please help us get caught up to the 21st century!

My Project

I work at a Title I school and struggle with student engagement because many of my students are hungry, tired or dealing with traumatic experiences at home. I'm always looking to liven up my room, since our classrooms are over 60 years old and still have chalkboards! We dont have smartboards or one to one technology so I want to make the space as inviting as possible through the use of flexible seating. The seating I have chosen such as the wobble chairs and flexible comfy floor seats will go a long way to adding choices for my students and bringing color to my room. Thank you so much for your support!
