My students are growing millennial sponges. Their academic growth potential is beyond me. Sometimes, they need to be able to grab a laptop and debate a point in lively classroom debates. Other times they should be able to find somewhere in the classroom to get comfortable and work on personal narratives. They are modest, sassy, diva, well-mannered, and anything but sheltered. These children are up to 80% at-risk youths. Every opportunity they have to increase their positivity towards learning will enable them to be motivated to complete their high school diploma programs.
The best teachers teach standing up, moving around the room as air traffic control for the notes and airplanes. This project will help provide sharpened pencils for students and standing desk options for me. The kids are so busy and fast that I don't have a single second to sit. Therefore, I am bending over my desk all day when they need me to check their grades or send work to them electronically. This creates a dysfunctional back for me. I would like to have standing access to my desk wherever I am in the classroom. The kids don't deserve me having to run back to my desk every time they need something I can only give to them through my laptop. Help support me standing up to teach.
