My Students

My school and community has a focus of a hand up and not a hand out. The students are very diverse in their ethnicity, yet very similar in their families' economic status.

Our school has a focus of love and grit.

While we understand that life is hard, if you don't make an effort, you cannot succeed. We believe that failures are proof that you are trying and that it is better to try and fail than to never have tried before. My job is to be their safety net, their cheerleader, and their teacher.

My Project

This amazing floor table with chairs will really provide a unique option for their flexible seating choices. Most flexible seating does not have a supportive back.

Not only do these chairs offer back support, they also fold flat for easy storage.

These chairs also provide unique options of removable linings so they can be easily washed when needed.

Next year, I will have a larger class size. Currently, I do not have enough seating for all the new students that will arrive. Help me create more unique seating options for the new students that will be added to my class.
