Hurricane Harvey Took My Classroom Away

My students need wobble chairs and backpack hooks to maximize space in my classroom.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

I'm a 3rd grade Language Arts teacher in Houston, Texas. About 99% of my students are Title I which basically means they really don't have a ton of money. My students are also transitioning from Spanish to English which makes educating them a bit more challenging.

My class and school were greatly impacted by the effects of Hurricane Harvey.

We were one of 4 schools in my school district that lost everything. We have been relocated to a temporary location because my school needs to be demolished and rebuilt.

My Project

When Hurricane Harvey hit Houston we really didn't think that it would have as great as an impact that it did. We lost our school and everything in it. When we were relocated to another location I didn't realize that the classroom would be smaller. We have tried to adapt, but I still have work to do.

Having these wobble chairs and backpack hooks would enable me to use my classroom more effectively.

The wobble chairs would enable me to get rid of the bulky chairs and enable me and the students to walk around easier. With the disappearance of the regular chairs, I would need the backpack hooks to mount to the wall so the kids can place them there.
