Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Our Pacific Northwest high school qualifies for Title I funding, we have a widely diverse population, and terrific students with many struggles. Over 65% of our students receive free and reduced rate lunch. Fourteen percent of our students are designated "English Language Learners." In one math classroom alone, students speak Arabic, Spanish, Tagalog, Mandinka, Fijian, Lao, Amharic, Chinese and English.

Our students often come to school tired, hungry, cold and in clothes that are not clean or have holes in them (not for style).

They are amazingly filled with perseverance and drive. About every other day, I learn of a new story about one of our kids that is both heartbreaking and inspiring. When they ask for a granola bar, they are so thankful.

My Project

I like to provide seating options for students in my room. The Wobble cushions work amazingly for students who are not able to keep themselves in their seats (from sophomores to seniors!). The chair bands also provide for movement without having to stand up. Last year my desks were upgraded (yay). The new bands will provide more bands and will fit the new desks.

Rubik's cubes and fraction tiles will help with students who are struggling to practice repetitive algorithms and have visual representations.

I have noticed increased engagement when I use these resources with my students. Additionally, I included some perpetual motion items and classroom decorations to spark student thinking and add visual interest.
