Mrs. Crowley from Nantucket MA is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

High Top Math Talk

My students need flexible seating choices like high top tables and stools. Middle school students LOVE tall tables for collaboration and group work.

My Students

My students represent the growing diversity of the year-round population on Nantucket. Some are "natives" and were born and raised on our island; while others are from "around the point" and have just recently moved here from both near and far away lands. They are creative, energetic, and come to school eager to learn.

Outside of school, many students are dealing with issues that are impacting our whole community.

Year-round housing is difficult to find, so many students are accustomed to doing the "Nantucket Shuffle" moving from one house to another during the summer months. Caring for family members while parents and guardians work two or three jobs, prevent access to after school help or extra-curricular activities for many of my students. Despite the issues, they continue to come to school with smiles on their faces.

My Project

It's time to create an atmosphere in math class that encourages students to give their best effort and flexible seating will help. Math scores across our district are below average and often, by middle school, students have already decided they "cannot do math". My passion is to change that mindset and help them love math as much as I do.

I want to create a classroom that has students excited to come to class and work hard.

Most of our class time is spent collaborating in small groups where students help and support each other. This past year, students often argued about who could use the one tall table that I had purchased for my class. Colorful tall tables will allow for more flexibility and choice for more of my students. Some students like using the tall tables as a standing desk and others prefer using stools.
