One of the major changes I have made in my teaching was changing the overall environment of the classroom to meet student need. I have instilled in my students that it is important that they feel comfortable in our classroom. There are plants, different lighting and carpets for adding that feeling of comfort. Sitting in a chair at a desk can be good for some students but not all. I found myself struggling when needing to sit all day at conferences or training. I needed to move or stand. Also, it is important to me that our students take ownership of the classroom and make sure they understand the fact that this classroom is OUR classroom not mine. It’s ours to make changes we agree on and to take care of. Students are able to choose working at a standing table, a lower table allowing them to sit on the floor or kneel, and other types of tables. Some students prefer having their own desk too. Students have the option to change where they want to work and think. Therefore we need options so students can make these choices.
