My Students

I am in the twilight of my teaching career. I have taught at several high schools, elite and average, but my experiences my school are special. These children are exceptional. The majority of my students work jobs to help with family expenses or to provide for themselves. The majority ride a bus to school and back home. A few are athletes and a few are in the band. None of my children consider themselves scholars. And yet they will work diligently to conquer material, to come before or after school for extra help, to attend a Saturday school to review ACT materials. They have been commended for solving over 35,000 math problems correctly on a computer program, putting in over 300 hours of math studies. They bring a smile to my face daily.

Our school is a rural Appalachian high school where the majority of the children are economically disadvantaged.

My earnest hope is that we can secure funds to specifically aid these children to enhance their understanding of mathematics and greatly enhance their opportunities after high school. Help me make mathematics active, energizing and challenging, reflective of student interests and relative to their future careers.

My Project

All students sit most of the day. They usually move 5 or 10 minutes between classes, then return to their seats. Not only is that boring but it is exhausting and it is uncomfortable.

All children need to be comfortable in their learning environment, whether it be the chair they sit in, the temperature of the room or any other circumstance that can be controlled.

My children work long, hard hours and need that comfort. I can feed them, keep them warm or cool, but I need help to keep them comfortable sitting there. I have chosen Coccyx orthopedic seat cushions to make our learning environment better. Please help me make my children comfortable.
