My Students

My 630 students are in grades K-5. I teach 28 different classes each week. My school is a diverse mix of students from the Charlotte, NC community. We have many different nationalities represented and with all levels of ability. The one thing they all have in common is the importance of a quality education. In fact, their futures depend on it.

Despite being economically challenged, these kids are true go-getters and lovers of learning.

They embrace everything I am teaching them. They love school, everything from reading to math to art to anything technology-based. School is a safe haven for many of my students.

My Project

As I enter my 2nd year as the Media Coordinator at my school, I am looking to add a few new fun items for the kids to use. I have been generously funded a new dry erase table at the end of the last school year via DonorsChoose.org donors and would like to add some cool seating to go with it.

I would like two sets of padded stacking stools for the students to use while creating works of art on the dry erase table.

These sturdy black stools with colorful padding will work perfectly with our neon green tabletop and will allow the students to have more space to gather around the table vs. dealing with traditional classroom chairs.
