My Students

My students attend a Title I public school. They love coming to school because it is where they feel safe, cared for and loved.

Every student at my school receives free breakfast and lunch.

Many of my students live below the poverty line. I want my students to feel like our classroom is a safe space for them to come and learn. While there may been some chaos in their neighborhoods or home lives, I do everything I can to make our classroom a structured and safe environment. I want our classroom to be a place where they look forward to coming to every morning, and a place where they don't want to leave every afternoon.

My Project

I know what you’re thinking. Storage doesn’t help my students in a tangible way, and so you don’t want to donate. Well, let me change your mindset. My students have been so fortunate to get thousands of dollars’ worth of classroom materials. We’ve received books, math stations, science materials…the list goes on and on. However, despite getting more classroom materials to use to enrich instruction, my classroom has not expanded to accommodate everything in a neat and organized way. While I beg the maintenance crew to add an extension to my classroom whenever they change my air filter, it hasn’t happened yet. My school is over 50 years old and does not have storage or closets like some newer schools do.

Clutter is distracting to students.

A neat, organized space makes puts the students at ease and creates a calm learning environment. Right now our classroom has a lot of distractions because we do not have a proper place to tuck away our supplies and materials. These two storage cabinets would be able to go against the wall in our classroom to hold our materials. What’s great is that it is not open shelving, and has doors that lock, so our materials will be tucked away safely when they are not in use.
