My Students

When you walk into Room 207, you will find students EVERYWHERE! My kids love to move and I give them as much freedom as possible to get comfortable as we engage in our lessons.

My students are energetic, creative and eager to learn.

In addition to the curriculum, our students are heavily involved in the social and emotional development that comes along with 6th grade and the middle school model. My students have a variety of needs and receive services from Special Education, English as a Second Language, Gifted, Native American Student Services, Student Support Plans and other programs that assist in remediation and extensions. Over 50% of our students receive free/reduced lunch.

My Project

Movement is crucial for my students! The physical development that occurs within this age group and need to move is immense. Long-term stationary seating is uncomfortable and disengaging for even the most focused of adults, so you can imagine how confining and painful it would be for young, growing bodies to be forced to sit for 8 hours! These Hokki stools provide natural movement that enables students to remain seated and focused while providing an outlet for energy.

Education is continuing to make cuts across the board, and innovative resources are often the first items to go - a donation to this project ensures that students will remain engaged and demonstrate that educators can still provide an inviting and creative space for learning.
