Mr. Kreller from Chicago IL is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Mobile Standing Desks for the LEAP Personalized Learning Challenge

My students need to have the option to work at a mobile standing desk. These Safco AlphaBetter Beige Desktops have been a gamechanger for students and staff that have been able to use it!

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My students are 12 to 14 year-olds that live in Chicago and attend a high-performing K-8 charter school. This project is meant to help them as part of the LEAP Personalized Learning Challenge.

They are high-achievers that enjoy working hard, having fun, and getting good grades.

They aspire to get into top high schools and universities. Many have an idea of what they want to be when they're older and are already figuring out what it takes to see their dreams become reality.

We are in need of new headphones to improve the classroom learning environment. Any help is sincerely appreciated!

My Project

Within the last few years, there has been a push in education to modernize learning and make school significantly more targeted and meaningful for students. We have completely redesigned the learning experience to make it more student-centered and student-led.

These requested Safco AlphaBetter standing desks will help add to the transformation of the classroom that's already utilized mobile chairs and desks, whiteboard surfaces, couches, and other furniture beyond the antiquated rows of students desks and chairs.

By donating to this project, you are helping improve the educational experience of young learners. These kids deserve the opportunity to learn and work in a 21st-century classroom.

Thanks in advance for your support!

Mr. Kreller
Grades 6-8
Nearly all students from low‑income households
