My Students

I teach at a title one school in Mesa, Arizona. Our school provides free breakfast to all families and the majority of our students are also provided free lunches as well. We run a program sending about 1/4 of our families home with food over the weekends every week.

I have already spent hundreds of dollars to revamp my classroom as much as possible on my own to turn it into a more comfortable “home” environment that many of them long for.

I want to make this a room these kids not only flourish academically in, but feel comfortable and happy emotionally as well. I just need help to get the last few things I cannot afford on my own for these wonderful little people!

My Project

These stools are the perfect solution for our classroom seating! I have worked hard to turn my classroom into a place that feels more like a home than a classroom. I have thrown out the idea of a traditional classroom by getting rid of the traditional desks and chairs. I built a small house structure in the corner of my room for a reading nook, traded desks in with a grant to fund new tables with dry erase tops, used my filing cabinets to build a small sanctuary with curtains, and many other wonderful things. Now I am asking for your help to order these stools!
