My Students

I truly believe that we have some of the kindest, funny, and caring students on the planet. The students at our school are amazing! They come to school every day with great attitudes and a drive to learn, regardless of their home situations.

Unfortunately, my students have many obstacles in their young lives like their socioeconomic status (all our students qualify for free lunch), their living area, the fact that over 90% of our students are ESL, and the list goes on and on.

Our students overcome these challenges on a daily basis. They come to school, a safe, warm place, ready, excited, and willing to learn. They look up to us and expect great things just as we expect great things of them. I am hoping to be afforded the opportunity to meet my students' most basic needs so they can fully focus on their education.

My students have had very few experiences in their lives and have very few resources available to them outside of school, and that is why I am hoping that you will provide them this opportunity to utilize these resources that they may never otherwise be able to use.

My Project

I am asking for multiple seating options that will allow me to create a more warm and engaging environment for my students to learn in.

Children spend a lot of their days in school so let's make it a place that they WANT to be and enjoy!

This project would enable me to create a more comfortable environment with more engaging, bright, and colorful areas to sit. It would also increase student motivation to want to be in class and learning because it is a more warm and welcoming place. I want my students to feel happy and comfortable while in school and I believe that making our classroom more student friendly will do this.

Thank you!
