Ms. Alvarado from Washington DC is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students student tables that create a safe and comfortable classroom
My students are some of the most resilient people I have ever met. Many of them have fled their home country because of violence, political corruption, and poverty. All my students are English language learners and some have experienced interrupted education. However, they do not let their current or past struggles get in the way of pursuing a better future for themselves and their families. My students invest time in their education. They stay after school, on Saturdays, and even come in the summer just so they can catch up to the rest of their peers.
The adversity my students face is not that of a typical teenager, especially in the current political climate.
Their passion and perseverance is truly inspiring.
After a year and a half of learning, my students are coming back to the classroom, and they deserve to be safe and comfortable. Our classroom furniture is over 15 years old. The desks are not safely supported by their frames anymore. They wiggle and bend whenever we move them and some are just barely balancing for survival. In addition, the siding of the desks have been falling apart and creating edges that cause splinters.
To ensure that our classroom environment is conducive to learning and a safe environment, I am requesting help with purchasing new desks to replace our extremely worn out furniture.
I know this is a big ask, but this is a necessity for my students. I hope after all the uncertainty of he past year and a half, we are able to bring back stability into their lives by showing them they deserve comfort.
