My Students

Living and teaching in rural Virginia has been such a blessing! I have a classroom of 19 spirited, energetic, and loving 2nd graders who come to school every day eager to see what the day brings them.

Their excitement and energy is contagious!

For many of my students, school provides routine and is a place of security that they may not get at home. Though we are a Title 1 school, our students know when they walk through the doors they will be given the opportunities they deserve.

My students love to learn! I love to see their faces light up with excitement when they "get it". They love to share ideas, collaborate to solve problems and play games to make learning fun.

My Project

Flexible seating is so much more than "getting the wiggles out" as many people may think. Flexible seating in my classroom is about choice. Giving students a choice allows them to take charge of their learning. They can choose where and how they work best. Having options like the Lap Desks, yoga mats, and cushions will allow them to move away from the old traditional desks.

Doesn't everyone like to be comfortable when doing their work?

So do our students. Right now they love to sit under their desks, use my rocking chair, or just lay on the carpet with clipboards. I love the idea that I can give them even more options.

Collaboration is a HUGE part of our classroom. We partner up, group up, and change those partners and groups quite often. These extra seating options- and moving away from traditional desks will allow my students to not only have flexible seats, but also flexible groups!
