Library Flex-Space Tables

Help me give my students a new Flex-Space table that will allow our students to move the furniture in the media center around to meet their learning needs.

My Students

The majority of my students come from a low income background with 100% of them receiving free or reduced lunch. These students seem to have everything possible working against them, and yet they show up every day ready to learn.

School is each one of these students safe place-a place where they are loved, a place where they are held accountable, and a place where they are supported.

These students are growing to love learning through a love of reading. Books allow them an escape from their reality. They also provide a place for them to learn, travel, feel, process, and grow. These students will truly be part of changing the trajectory for their community, but they cannot change it on their own.

My Project

Our media center has been in dire need of a refresh for a long time. We had teacher volunteers come in and paint the space, and decorate the walls. The furniture is old, creaky, and just plain uncomfortable.

The media center should be a destination on campus, and our students don't like to go because the furniture is not very accommodating to their comfort or learning needs.

Providing tables that are flexible to students needs and allow the students to manipulate their environment will provide an opportunity for students to be better engaged and productive. Providing a space that is inviting for students will encourage them to come to a place where they are free to learn and explore their interests to their fullest abilities.
