My Students

I work in a Title 1 school in a high need area. Most of the elementary students that attend our school are homeless, live in trailers, motels, with family, or in government housing. We work hard to make the school a safe and secure place for them. These are smart, kind, and hardworking students who are overcoming many challenges outside of school and are trying to soar in their classrooms. They deserve the best to accomplish their goals and dreams.

My Project

My students are active learners and they like to move as they learn. They like to sit on the floor and sit in stools in small groups while they work. The problem has been limited writing surfaces. They try to make it work on any tabletop surface but they need resources.

These portable desks give my students a moving desk and place to sit to work at their comfort.

They will be able to sit on a chair, stool, or on the floor and still be able to work without having to hold everything in their lap.

These desks would work for students to work inside and outside the classroom. Simple and portable-these desks give my students the flexibility they need in their classroom to work the way they feel the most comfortable.
