My Students

My school is located in one of the most densely populated areas of California. The neighborhood outside of our school is a beautiful and rich mix of cultures from Central and South America, but it is also a neighborhood that struggles with gang-related violence, persistent poverty, and the slow creep of gentrification.

My students know very well that education is the key to them escaping the cycle of poverty and instability, so we have one of the highest attendance rates in the area.

Our graduates have gone on to graduate from excellent schools like Harvard, Stanford, UCLA, UC Berkeley, MIT, USC, Columbia, and Tufts to name a few.

My Project

Does the thought of curling up with a good book in a cozy chair make you smile? What about the thought of sitting down with a good book on a hard chair at a library table. Maybe not as cozy.

My students need some new seating in the library that will inspire students to grab a book, take a seat in a cozy chair, and read away.

As of now, there is no comfortable seating in the library for reading. That needs to change.

With this requested seating, I'll be able to carve out cozy pockets in the corners and nooks of the library for students to retreat to and read.
