My students need mobile desk carts allowing them the option to sit or stand while they work and the ability to move their desks to work in groups or with partners.

At our school, we are RISING UP!
Our students come to school each day ready to connect with each other, engage with the world around us, and create new ways of expressing our knowledge.
As an educator entering my 14th year of service, with experience as both a teacher and supervisor, I am so excited to continue working with the team at my school and teach some of the most creative students I have ever met! My classroom serves students with Autism, Learning Disabilities, Intellectual Disabilities, and other impairments. Our school celebrates inclusion and we work hard to provide students with opportunities for individual success. My students may have varying levels of ability, but they don’t let that stop them from serving others and doing their best!
My students like to move around while they work and having adjustable desks will be a big help to them! Many of my students have problems with attention and focus. Allowing them to stand while working provides students the opportunity to move and get any extra energy out while maintaining focus on their work. Additionally, giving students the option to sit or stand provides them with the ability to decide what works best for them throughout the day. This may seem like a simple choice, but providing students with a choice in their education goes a long way in keeping them engaged.
In donating to this project, you will provide students the opportunity to remain engaged in learning while allowing them to be themselves!
Students can focus on their work without fighting the urge to get up and move around. These desks also provide the ability for students to move their desks easily in order to work with others collaboratively. Students will be able to wheel their desks quickly over to one another without disrupting other students. My students will love the freedom these desks provide.
