Mrs. P. from Brownsville TX is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Space for You and Me

My students need their own space. My students are low income and need several accommodations. They need to be in an environment that is comfortable and cozy while also learning. Keeping the environment innovative is essential.

My Students

My students are all unique and are a bunch of sweethearts. I love them. Sometimes they call me mom. My class loves to ask questions and research the unknown. They love reading, math, and science. They also love technology. They enjoy assignments online and we interact through presentations. They love the class Weebly we created. I love my job and enjoy teaching them and making them think outside the box. There are not enough hours in the day to get it all and quench their thirst for knowledge.

My Project

Students need to take breaks while learning.

The furniture will be comfortable and cozy bring their stress level low letting all the knowledge in.

The table will give me proximity when I am teaching my small group and 1:1 instructional to my tier students. Once the students feel they can start asking questions making learning memorable. It’s all customizing instruction for the students. Students need to move around the room and have a special place to relax and read s good book, complete and assignment in their tablet, or learning in a small group environment.

All student need feel at home at school.
