The students I work with are from a rural mill town where business has not been booming lately. Poverty levels are high and aspirations are low. The students in my classes have emotional, intellectual, and learning disabilities which prevent them from being successful in many regular high school classes. As a newer teacher, my supplies are limited and I have to find creative ways to motivate my students. Once they come to school I need to not only teach them but make them want to come back the next day. This happens through support, honesty, and trust. Any help would be much appreciated!
I work with a diverse, often active group of high school special education students. For some reason these students don’t enjoy sitting in hard chairs with a desk in front of them (can you blame them?) While I have done other projects for comfortable seating and school supplies, what the classroom really needs is different desk options.
This project would fund two sit or stand desks which would appeal to many of my students who think that it is awesome when the principal stands in front of a podium.
I am willing to try anything and everything to meet my students academic and emotional needs.
