My Students

My students are rockstars! Despite the challenges they face on a daily basis, they persevere. Each have their own battles, but we take one day at a time and learn however can.

"Teach me and I'll forget; Show me and I may remember; Involve me and I'll learn." - Benjamin Franklin.

Our classroom is a hands on learning experience each and every day. Not only do we work on every subject, but we also learn life skills that will help us out in the future. Because each of my students are different in so many ways, learning must be done in different ways. Providing my students with the best learning environment possible is one of my top priorities.

My Project

In my classroom, as in every other classroom throughout the world, my students are unique individuals. Unlike most classrooms, my students also range in age and developmental abilities. I have 6 kiddos between the ages of 6 to 13 and next year we will be adding 4 more littles. Because of my students unique traits and abilities, I need seating to match!

The flexible seating that I have selected will not only allow my students to complete their work but it will allow them to continue to stay focused throughout the day.

They will be able to bounce and wiggle, wobble and rock, even pedal all while remaining at their desk. Flexible seating will also give the students in my room and easier way to work together. The light weight chairs and portable desks will allow them to work all around the room, with or without a partner. I truly believe that these options will brighten my students day here at school and will bring a sense of joy to their daily work.
