My students not only come from a low-income area, they are also working to learn the English Language. Despite all the hardships they have outside of school, they come to school ready to learn.
I teach at a Title I school where 88% of our students receive free or reduced breakfast and lunch.
We provide Blessings in a Backpack, where they take a bag of food home on the weekends. Despite so many hardships, my students walk into my classroom with a smile on their face and are so eager to learn. They deserve the materials that will help to push them to their full potential.
Having adjustable desks would would offer my students the option to stand while learning. This will improve their learning by allowing them to focus and keep alert in an alternative method.
All of my students learn differently and this is one way to help them be successful.
Standing improves mood, energy and posture as well as using a standing desk is more likely to boost productivity. My goal is to have ALL of my students do their best and give 100% effort. This is just one of the tools that they are missing out on that will help us to complete our classroom.
