My Students

Our school is a wonderful public school with neighborhood children and transfer students who wait in line overnight to get a spot in our school. The students value education and want to become lifelong learners.

We have a diverse student body.

We are so blessed to have great parental support. We are the only public school in our city that is not Title I. This means that we do not get any extra funding for school "extras". We rely on to help teachers equip their classrooms with the "extras".

My Project

How many times a day does a teacher say, "Please sit down." If my students had this Work Space Bundle (4 groovy floor chairs and a low table), they will want to sit without being asked.

Students learn best from each other.

I have my students work in stations every day. There is never enough room for students to sit together and write. This bundle has fun chairs that can fold and be stored under the work table. We can set it up when we go to stations and move it out of the way when we don't need it.
