My Students

Our students are unique and innovative. They are capable to success, but they don't always take traditional routes. They learn better when we encourage their individuality and give them opportunities to shine in their own ways. They need to be pushed to meet their potential.

They love to step up and exceed expectations.

But they haven't been given too many chances to do so. Many of them are wise beyond their years, and play major roles in their families, while others have experiences limited stability in their lives.

My Project

Education has come so far over the years, why haven't our classrooms? The traditional desks that are school provided are hard and unwelcoming. It is near impossible for students to focus when they are so uncomfortable and constantly tempted to fidget or get up. I want my classroom to be somewhere that students want to be, and want to learn.

Students do their best work when they are comfortable and happy.

I want my students to be focused on learning, not how uncomfortable they are. My students are so diverse in their backgrounds, experiences, and most importantly learning style. I want my classroom to reflect their individuality and support their unique learning styles.

Grades 6-8
Nearly all students from low‑income households
