I teach in a culturally diverse Title One school where ninety-five percent of the students are socioeconomically disadvantaged. Many of them have struggled academically. Most are English Language Learners who are learning to speak English alongside their academic learning. Even getting to school can be a challenge with early pickups and long bus rides required to get to school on time. My students work hard everyday to overcome the challenges that they face. This is especially true since the Sonoma fires ripped through our community last October. We are still feeling the impact of the fires that changed our community.
My students come to school actively excited everyday; they love to learn and explore.
We are excited about our full year of learning together!
Imagine being at work and having to spend six hours a day sitting at a desk. Now imagine having the choice to comfortably stand while you work or to relax on the floor with a lap desk. The second image is much preferable. This flexibility is what I want to give my students.
These standing desks will give my students the flexibility to stand while they work or to sit comfortably on the floor and have a solid work surface.
When working independently on their computers, my students like to spread themselves around the room. These desks will allow them to raise their laptops up higher to make them more comfortable to work on, helping to reduce neck strain and repetitive stress injuries.
