My Students

Our students are motivated, hardworking, and creative. They come from a variety of cultural backgrounds. Our school and its students are very diverse. We have a variety of learners in our classrooms: English Language Learners and Special Ed students. Our students come from a variety of economic backgrounds as well. More than half of our students qualify for free/reduced lunch. Our students also speak many different languages which adds a great cultural component to our Italian classes. Our Italian students have a passion for the language and enjoying learning in our room.

My Project

I am asking for standing desks for my students. Standing desks will provide my students with an alternative desk to learn in class. There are some students in class that have a hard time learning when they are sitting all the time. By providing them with an alternative desk option we will allow them to learn in the manner that helps them the most. Other teachers in my district have standing desks and they have found that they have helped with disruptions to the learning environment in their classroom. My hope with providing an alternative option for a desk is that my students will be more attentive, disrupt less, and enjoy learning.
