Upgrading Classroom Chairs

My students need new desk chairs in their classroom to replace the very old, broken ones.

My Students

My first graders are energetic learners full of curiosity and determination. They come from all parts of the world and speak many languages but they all share a desire for learning. They are first generation students working enthusiastically in all subject areas. Some of them have left worn torn countries to rebuild their lives here in the United States. Education is a top priority for these students and their families. They have come to the United States seeking a better life and education.

My Project

I have taken an inventory of the classroom chairs and many of them are cracked. The swivel glide has broken off many of them which causes the students to rock back and forth. As a result, the children sit on very uncomfortable chairs throughout the day. The chairs are the real workhorses of the classroom. Chairs should be comfortable ergonomically designed and well built to create the best learning environment. The swivel Glide chair works best because they automatically adjust to create a level work space. They are also best on tile flooring. Having new chairs will allow the students to be comfortable while learning.
