Sittin' In Style!

My students need 25 new chairs.

My amazing second graders in San Francisco come from tough backgrounds but always exceed expectations! Our school got a fresh start 4 years ago with new teachers and administrators, but most of our furniture and supplies exceeds our tenure tenfold! The school district has no plans to buy any new furniture in the next few years.

My group of inner-city second graders would knock your socks off. Unfortunately, they're too busy getting knocked off of their broken old chairs to get through the year without injury!

We accomplish truly great things in our classroom - this year alone we have written our own self-published books, had a real Thanksgiving dinner, and performed a Stevie Wonder dance, but when you look around our room the beautiful finished projects are overshadowed by the dirty, broken chairs that fill the room. New chairs would give my students ownership over their classroom and make them feel more serious about learning.

Think about the chairs in your home. Think about the way that you feel when you sit in a chair that suits you perfectly, that you chose yourself. Then think about how you feel in a wobbly, unstable, too-small chair. You have the chance to make these children feel at home in their classroom and safe at school!
