Mrs. Stearns from El Paso TX is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Standing Up Desk

Help me give my students a comfortable standing desk for some of my students to feel a bit more comfortable if they decide standing is what they need at the moment.

My Students

I work in the small Texas town of El Paso, surrounded by beautiful bilingual students who want to make this world a better place by learning all they can about science, technology, engineering, and math.

The kids here are blessings in my life!

They are ready to experience, and they appreciate learning and sharing what they have learned and putting it to good use to better serve their community. I know no one becomes a teacher to be rich; we become teachers because we love kids and we want to make a difference in their lives.

I hope to have a classroom where kids can explore, learn, create, and solve! Programming is new to them and they want to get better at it! We have so many out dated iPads and we would love some new ones so we can use them for new applications

My Project

Sometimes I have students that are fidgety and might need to stand up just to stretch the legs. Sitting all day and moving coming into the lab just to sit some more make it difficult for some students and having the flexibility to stand would make the world of difference.

Having a station where the student can choose to stand or sit is a flexible computer lab option.

Students are all different and I know not all students want to sit all the time. Imagine a student coming into my lab and knowing he/she can decide whether to use the standing station or a regular sitting station.
