My Students

Our school is an urban, public elementary charter school dedicated to students with specific language-based learning disabilities. Approximately 85% of our students have IEP/504 plans and 100% receive free/reduced-price lunch. Some students come into our school and classrooms believing that they are not smart enough. That's not true! They all have the capability of being AMAZING, they just need help honing the tools they already have and are learning.

Our students are energetic, ready to learn, and excited, despite the difficulties that they face!

Many of our students come to our school reading below grade level, and even believing that they are incapable of being readers. But that's not true! With our co-teaching classroom design, small-group instruction (6:1 student-to-teacher ratio), flexible grouping, and a multi-sensory approach to teaching, they are capable, with more than enough tools by the end of the year, to be wonderful readers, learners and young adults!

My Project

Having reliable supplies is a must-have for every school and classroom! This is especially true of classroom furniture.

Help me create a comfortable, collaborative, and welcoming space with these stools!

These stools were chosen specifically for my students to be comfortable and stay engaged during the duration of class and independent work time. They are easy to stack on each other in times that we will need to save space, but are also easy to spread out and move when necessary, like in small group time. Your donation will help my students stay comfortable and engaged throughout the year, as they will be held up by these sturdy stools!
