My Students

I teach excited sixth graders math in an economically disadvantaged middle school. Over 60% of students come from low-income families. Like most sixth graders, my students enjoy being active and engaging in hands-on learning!

I am dedicated to providing a student-centered environment for success for my students!

Having your support in creating our learning environment means I am able to do even more for my students! Thanks to my generous donors, I've been able to make some amazing changes that have allowed my students to enjoy learning! We are helping my students develop a love of learning that will last a lifetime!

My Project

We love flexible seating! My students already love the standing group of desks we made using bed risers. It's time to commit to the real deal! The new standing desks will be sturdier and will fit together nicely. Right now the bed risers prevent us from pushing the desks close together.

We are active learners!

The Stand2Learn YZE Standing Student Desk promotes healthy circulation and focus throughout the school day. The desks have footrests to allow students to fidget without being a distraction and find their most comfortable position.

My students have shown so much focus and responsible behavior since adding more flexible seating. They must make good choices and be successful in order to choose their own seat and stay there. This encourages my students to stay engaged! I'm excited to offer real stand up desks as a seating choice!
