My Students

The students at my school are amazing! They are curious and eager to learn! However, our school's demographic is one that is considered a low economic status, and many students come from homes with low Incomes. They are always looking for more, and I would love to be able to provide them with a gluttony of materials to quench their thirst for more learning! My students would love to challenge themselves and push their learning to the next level. Thanks for reading!

My Project

Everyone knows that the best way to learn is when the environment is inviting, relaxed, and comfortable. Sitting in hard, cold chairs isn’t how most people enjoy reading a good book, and neither do students! This project will allow students a place to sit and relax with friends while working on those brain wrinkles! Imagine a classroom where students WANT to be! What student wouldn’t love a cozy sofa, inviting bean bag chairs, and a fuzzy rug to snuggle down into when reading a good book or drafting a writing assignment. This project aims to eliminate the uncomfortableness of desks and cold chairs and invite students to get cozy while learning.
