My students need places to sit that make them comfortable and engaged.
I'm a teacher at a low-income/high poverty school district. My students are faced with many difficult challenges both in and out of the classroom. I am looking to help their situation in any way I can.
My students are creative, clever, and very lovable.
They love to read, read a lot of books. They also love positive attention. Many of them are being raised by a grandparent, in foster care, or in single parent households. Most all receive a free lunch based on their socioeconomic status. These disadvantages may prevent them from getting ahead early in life. They may not be provided with the life experiences many of us see as "typical".
From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom I focus on their potential and growth. While they are with me, I do the best that I can. I may not be able to control their home lives; however, I can certainly control their experience during the school day. I can do this in creative and positive ways. I am hopeful to inspire even our earliest learners to continue on a path of academic excellence.
These materials will make a huge difference for the students. They are in need of unbroken desk and chairs. They are in need of a classroom that has a great area for them to learn. They need furniture that makes them feel like they matter. A classroom that makes them feel excited about learning new things. The desks and chairs they have now are broken and taped back together. With these cozy places to relax, they will be able to sit together and work on projects. They can feel like they are in a real work environment, solving problems together. They can feel like school is a special place again.
