My Students

My students walk into the classroom every day with smiles on their faces no matter what happened at home the night before. They are eager to greet each other and get their day started.

I want my students to be able to have high-quality teachers with the addition of high-quality materials.

I teach in a Title I school in Indiana where 70% of the population lives at or below the poverty line. 30% of the students are transient for a multitude of reasons. The students are desperate to learn and have proved themselves by their hard work. I want to expand the students' existing knowledge and give them more resources than they realize are available.

My Project

Flexible seating allows more students the option to wiggle while they work! There are many students through out all three classes who need wobbly stools to exert their energy, help them focus, and also help them stay awake! These stools will be used at a horseshoe table where small groups of students meet daily! The cushion chair is also an option for students to move around and have other options. There are students who need these things to be as successful as possible and with your help, we will be able to give them the chance! Kinesthetic movement can play a role in students achievement!
