Kayleigh Amos, a special education teacher at Lukeville Elementary, received a big surprise on Thursday afternoon.
For Amos, non-conventional seating was something Lukeville Elementary didn’t have the funds to provide. “To have that opportunity to utilize such an amazing community of people from Help A Teacher, and to be able to provide that for my kids is just amazing, I feel emotional right now,” Amos said with a vibrant smile.
“I have a lot of kiddos who like to wiggle, we like to move, we like to get around, so the conventional seating of normal desks can sometimes be a challenge,” said Amos. The interactive, fun seating, will allow her children to learn and move a little more freely at the same time.
Amos said she hopes this will maximize her students potential for learning.
Help A Teacher, a nationwide non profit organization has been bridging the gap between teachers and supporters for 6 months.
Teachers can create a wish list online for generous donors to purchase. Donors choose the item(s) they want to purchase, which are then immediately shipped to the teacher.
