My Students

My students are part of a wonderfully close-knit community that has had many challenges. They live in a low income part of Philadelphia, and the neighborhood can be difficult, with many challenges. My students have not been given a lot, and I try to provide them with everything that I can. Many of my students receive free or reduced-rate breakfast and lunch. This year it is my goal to make all my students feel welcome and comfortable in our classroom.

My Project

My classroom is in need of new furniture because our broken mismatched stuff is no longer working for our amazing learning. Our classroom works very well together, and we are now in need of furniture that can work with us too.

Please help us get a new table that can handle the level of learning we are doing.

Unfortunately, our furniture is showing its age and just giving up all around. It has been screwed together, re-screwed together, taped, and pretty much anything else you can think of to keep it together. Now is the time that we just need new furniture.
