My Students

Our school's motto is "Reach For The Stars" which describes how our students strive for excellence every single day. They work hard, help each other to succeed, and motivate everyone to preform at their very best. In this class, we have a sense of family and we pride ourselves in our positive classroom environment. My students genuinely care about one another which makes being their teacher even more special.

My students are respectful, dedicated and persevere through the obstacles of being a fifth grade student.

They love to work in groups, play Kahoot! and try new activities. They are looking forward to the challenges and excitement that middle school has to offer.

My Project

Flexible seating allows for students to have a choice in where they sit in order for them to perform at their best. Having multiple seating options promotes a commitment to learning, as well as physical health. Students need to be able to move around, wobble, bounce, stand and lean because it helps the flow of oxygen throughout their body reach their brain. Flexible seating also helps students stay focused and alert throughout the day. I have noticed my students are more engaged in their independent and group work when they are given a choice of of where to sit.

I have seen flexible seating effectively used in other classrooms so I know first-hand the impact they have on little minds.

The students enjoy these bouncing seats because it allows them to move around without leaving their seat. These will seats will be an amazing addition to our flexible seating classroom environment!
