Mrs. Townsend from Homestead FL is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Independent Work Office

Help me give my students two places for students to work independently on their book publishing, college and job applications as well as any other independent work they might have. Included in this is a flexible seat option.

My Students

My students are driven, eager, and excited about school. Many of them look forward to coming to school because they are surrounded by people who love and care for them.

The majority of our students receive free or reduced-price lunch making us a Title I school.

Many of their parents work more than one job just to make ends meet. Some of our students are homeless, and have no access to basic needs let alone technology. Some students only spend a few hours with their parents each day. Therefore, I try my best to make my classroom as comforting as possible!

We need our students to be ready for college and their future careers. Without access to technology, they will be left far behind.

My Project

Because I teach high school 11th and 12th graders, I want them to be able to work independently and responsibly. I believe the two "special" tables and chairs will give them some personal autonomy to create and work on their assignments for my class, as well as for their future.

The days of old sticky desks and plastic chairs are gone.

These kids deserve comfortable seating with furniture that will make them feel like they are professionals. Since it is not economical to purchase furniture for the whole class, I would like to start with two. Please consider our plea for comfortable, professional furniture.
