I serve a very diverse population of over 140 students, where there are over 50 languages spoken. My classes include 11 Special Education students with a variety of learning disabilities and 2nd language learners. Furthermore, there are several At-Risk students who come from very broken homes and deserve a quality education. These At-Risk students are striving to use education as their primary tool to lift themselves out of the difficult circumstances they are currently in. The second language learners are also very focused in becoming fluent in English in order to create successful lives in our nation.
For years, I have been using shelves to help organize the many handouts I must give to the over 140 Students I serve annually. These paper shelves greatly assists me in efficiently getting important papers to students so I can effectively teach and serve the children. Unfortunately, after many years of use, the shelves I was using have broken down and I am in need of a replacement. I have found a suitable replacement and need financial assistance in purchasing it.
An organized classroom is vital to effective classroom instruction and the physical set-up of a classroom is important because it is the first thing students see when they walk in.
Factors such as unorganized bookshelves, unruly and random (student) desk patterns, and excess clutter can all make a difference, and not for the better. If the room is disorderly and unkempt, it reflects badly on the educator. A messy, (physically) unorganized classroom also creates a sense of instability.
I would be extremely grateful if you would be able to help me in this endeavor.
