Mr. McAllister from N Charleston SC is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Standing Desks for Outstanding Kids

My students need four standing desks that let my most anxious and fidgety students do their work standing. Four desks gives me a "standing table" appropriate for group work!

My Students

My students are motivated, intelligent kids attending a charter school in North Charleston. We use a lottery system to choose students, so we have a mix of wealthy, middle-class, and lower class students from a dizzying variety of family backgrounds. "Haves" rub shoulders with "have-nots;" latchkey kids with single moms and multiple siblings sit next to wealthy kids with their own cars and big homes in Mount Pleasant.

Gifted kids are often emotionally intense; sitting still forty-five minutes at a time is a huge challenge for many of them .

My Project

My students lead busy and stressful lives. Between jobs and the accelerated curriculum they take at PSA, it is difficult for many to stay awake and focused on the material in front of them. Standing desks would offer them an option to work and stay on top of their education. It also provides an opportunity for students with a lot of physical energy to move and work.

My students are such hard workers that they deserve every opportunity to succeed available.

I want to provide them with whatever resources they need to be successful and to learn. Flexible seating arrangements help to mitigate some of the effects of the anxiety, sleep deprivation, and ADHD from which many of them suffer.
