Mrs. Milligan from Shallotte NC is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Stand to Understand!

Help me give my students who have a hard time sitting down a chance to stand and learn. Some students prefer to stand, however, it is hard for them to access their writing material and/or Chromebook.

My Students

I am beyond excited for this school year because of my students! They are so happy to come to school and want to learn. I will have a few who need the extra motivation for learning to love school, however, as a whole, my students are so loving and I am beyond excited to grow with them this coming school year.

My amazing kiddos have a variety of special needs from the physical, mental, and academic challenges they face each day.

This classroom is part of the EC program where I will be teaching adaptive learning standards along with the standard course of study in a cross-cat setting.

My Project

I usually have at least 1 student each year who requires standing most of their educational day. They have a hard time sitting while learning. Standing has never bothered me, however, I know it is strenuous on my students having to bend over to write of using a computer. This desk will allow my students to be comfortable while learning.

I am hopeful our classroom can acquire the standing desk, to allow for students to access their materials and be able to stand at the same time.

I really appreciate your support for our classroom and the need for students to access their education in a flexible way.
