I am a second year teacher at a low-income, Title I school in which 25% of the school population are non-native English speakers and a 70% of the school population receives free/reduced lunch.
As a relatively new teacher, I am working on supplying my classroom with the essential materials to help my students succeed in their learning.
Despite the lack of resources in the neighborhood, many parents and community members make it a priority to volunteer within the school and help support the students in their growing and learning. Students are surrounded by people who care about them and want them to be the best learner that they can be, but many simply don't have the resources. As much as I want to give them these resources myself, I simply can't afford it. My incredible students deserve the same resources that more affluent students are fortunate enough to receive so that they can truly be their best learners.
I previously received six Hokki Stools through the generous supporters at Donor's Choose. I have seen my students benefit on a daily basis from having access to these stools. With increasing class sizes, more supplies are needed. I am now asking for your help to supply my classroom with more of these wobbly stools so that more of my students can benefit from them at the same time. Many kids learn so much better when they are allowed to move, so these stools are hugely beneficial to little kiddos like mine. Kids can wiggle on these stools while they read, write, play, listen, and so many other things that are crucial to their learning.
