Mr. Lang from Federal Way WA is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Help Turn Our Classroom into a Coffee Shop!

My students need more options for where they work, such as collaborative spaces, standing desks, and reading nooks.

My Students

My students are creative, thoughtful, problem-solvers. In my classes, I have students who are dedicated to attending college, some who have never thought about attending college, and some, due to what goes on beyond our school walls, who can hardly plan beyond this week. In other words, my students are diverse: they come from all socioeconomic backgrounds, each with a unique story to tell.

There is one thing I have found in them to be truly unifying: my students are intimately aware of issues in their communities and are dedicated to being part of the solutions.

Nestled in Federal Way, WA, the students who come through my classroom are learning to become compassionate activists: engaging in their communities for the betterment of our society.

My Project

By providing flexible seating in the classroom, this project gives students voice and choice for where they can be most productive. In other words, it treats them as adults. Just like we do when we enter into a Starbucks, flexible seating in the classroom provides students with the opportunity to learn to make positive choices for themselves.

The fact is: students care more about the quality of their work when they feel like they're being treated with respect.

This includes creating an environment around them that respects their ability to make good choices and also demands respect from them.

While just a start, this project will fund two new collaborative work nooks with comfy chairs, area rugs, and tables, two standing tables with chair options, and new lighting in the form of floor lamps.
