My Students

Our fourth grade students at TCCS are energetic, passionate, thoughtful, kind, and most of all, resilient. Our students love hands-on, active, engaging projects and challenges that allow them to think outside the box and find solutions! They love having different opportunities to express their various learning styles. They come to school each day ready to try new things and take risks to grow both personally and academically. Truly, they are our inspiration!

Our School is located in West Harlem (Title 1 District).

Our student population is diverse and includes, Hispanic, African American, Caucasian, Asian (Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Russian), Biracial, ENL (English as a New Language), IEP (Individualized Education Program) students. Diversity within our school is something we embrace and nurture.

My Project

Flexible seating is of the utmost importance in a classroom as it elevates student engagement - students learn best when they feel at ease in their learning environment. Flexible classrooms give students choice in what learning spaces work best for them and allow them to try those out. In turn, students can work more collaboratively and engage in more complex work.

Flexible classrooms allow their learners to wobble, rock, bounce, lean or stand, which increases oxygen flow to the brain, blood flow and core strength.

Flexible seating helps students gain greater flexibility and control of their surroundings - this helps build autonomy, builds higher motivation and academic performance, and improves overall behavior. Additionally, it allows students to advocate and make choices for themselves as learners, which will benefit them for years to come!
