My Students

The students I have come to know and love, work genuinely to become responsible thinkers. They are fun-loving and quick to help others. They are also humble and are eager to share.

Our students come from diverse backgrounds, joining our community from neighboring rural villages and outlying urban centers miles away.

Our local culture values a subsistence lifestyle, in which we believe in the preciousness of resources and practice non-wasteful customs. Community activities often taken place at the school, and our classrooms double as meeting places and a place for overnight visitors to rest.

My Project

After paying it forward to another class, we now find ourselves in need of 6 extra tables just like the ones we donated! These extra tables are perfect for accommodating class lists working with an odd number of students. Especially when a student shows up unexpectedly. Having these small "side" tables on hand will make it easy to add an additional member to a table group with little disruption to the already-established classroom flow.

There's nothing like the panic felt by a new student (as well as the teacher) on a first day at a new school maybe neither one was expecting!

How much easier would it be if there was a plan in place to accommodate those last-minute additions? Not to mention, be able to maintain individual spaces for larger groups of students when class sizes grow.
