The students in my seventh and eighth grade social studies classes are fascinated by history and current events. They are energetic, inquisitive, and thirsty for knowledge.
I teach at a Title I school in Philadelphia where 100 percent of our students receive free breakfast and lunch.
I teach a wide array of students from gifted to those on learning support. My students do not have the resources that they deserve and need in the classroom. They love reading, researching, and using various forms of technology that allow them to be immersed in the topics they are learning.
My students are having trouble using the desks that are provided to us. There is no room in the school budget to buy new furniture. We are in desperate need of new workspaces that can accommodate growing teenagers.
I teach in a K-8 school and the furniture provided is not adequate for my teenage students, many of them are too tall to use the desks that we have.
Aside from the size of the desks, I also do not have enough for all of my students. Getting this new desk will give my students room to work comfortably in my classroom.
