Mrs. Hess Shamdasani from Boynton Beach FL is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students the storage we need to keep our STEM lab safe and organized!
Focusing on STEM and Problem-Based Learning in my class allows me to place the responsibility of learning in the students' hands, empowering the at-risk students in my classroom.
At my Title I school, over 90 percent of the students receive free or reduced-price lunch.
Many speak English as a second language and are recent migrants to the US, or are first generation US citizens. My students are charismatic, hard-working teenagers, who are struggling to overcome the restraints that growing up in poverty has placed on them. While attending my school, each student receives vocational training. This prepares them for careers after high school.
However, for many of the students in my class, post-secondary education is what will provide them with the necessary skills to move out of that lowest 20% income bracket. Between the cost of maintaining a 40-year-old school and deep budget cuts for public schools, my extremely supportive administrative team can only approve the bare essentials for our classroom. I know that the students in my class would benefit from having up-to-date technology that allows them to learn about our world and to develop solutions to 21st-century problems.
With access to a rolling toolbox, a printer cart, and a mobile workstation, my students will have safe, secure places to store our STEM lab materials. A tool organizer will keep all of our tools organized. The mobile printing cart will provide us with a secure place to keep our 3D printer. The mobile workstation means that we can clear out the old, bulky teacher workstation making more space for learning!
While we have recently received many tools that make our STEM run smoothly, we are running out of space to safely conduct our activities.
We need the space to conduct several different projects at a time!
