My Students

I teach in a rural Title I district where my students experience homelessness, low socioeconomic status, and foster care. Some of my students are at risk of dropping out before graduation or even before completing middle school. This past year, some of my students were impacted by Hurricane Harvey as our county is prone to severe flooding. A majority of my students are enrolled in the English Language Learner program and struggle daily with learning the English Language to accurately read grade level books. Many of my students who are impacted by being homeless or extremely poor often come to school without basic supplies, experience hunger, are withdrawn, and tend to draw attention away from them. For these reasons, my district offers every child 100% free breakfast and lunch, a minimal dress code, and a partnership with the Houston Food Bank.

My students are eager to learn and grow in their reading and writing journey each and every day; however, our lack of resources limits us.

My Project

For many years, researchers have understood that the environment impacts behavior …Never did I realize just how valuable a piece of furniture can be to how one perceives the learning opportunities. With these new tables my students will have a feeling of importance. They will be comfortable and not have to worry if the table they are working at will break on them.

These tables will also aid in an active classroom where space is limited and movement is allowed and needed.

My students will know that learning is important because their classroom furniture reflects their own personal importance and needed movement.
