My students need new chairs and tables, along with storage sacks. The desks they have are falling a part and then falling over because they are all broken up.
I work with children from a low income area and are students with multiple disabilities. Many of them have experienced trauma in their lives and have difficulty coming to school. Our classes serve students with a range of disabilities, including intellectual disabilities, emotional disturbance, autism spectrum disorder and specific learning disabilities.
The typical student in my class reads at a kindergarten grade level and many struggle with basic phonics and number sense.
90% of our students are African American or Latino. The opportunity and achievement gaps are apparent among our student population.
Our classrooms are dilapidated, technology starved, outdated and nonexistent. Special Education teachers are expected to deliver excellent instruction in Science, Math, English, History and Technology without the right tools to teach our students.
I recently came to this new school in Queens. I walked in and saw all these little face sitting and desks that were all broken and at different heights. Every time one of my students is hard at work, one of there desks falls over because the leg came loose AGAIN. we need your help so bad! The chairs my kids sit on are peeling and they keep on catching there little pants and makes holes. I keep on taping the wood down but it doesn't stay. It's becoming unbearable. These new tables and chairs would really make this room feel like a clean, neat, and great place for them to do their work.
I want the classroom to be inviting, a place they want to be in and where they can work to achieve their goals.
Be apart of changing the life of my students.
