My Students

Our school serves students in grades PreK-Seniors. We provide rigorous academics, top-notch teachers, and a safe learning environment. We are consistently one of the top performing schools in our area every year. Our students come from every socioeconomic group and have a true love for learning.

Our goal is to foster a love for reading in our students, to give them a way to escape from the hardships and challenges they may face, and to be able to dive into a book for a few hours each day.

We have a lot of challenges throughout the year to help the children feel a sense of accomplishment in the number of books they have read. We always say, "You must read before you can do the rest! So READ, READ, READ!"

My Project

My class is currently moving towards flexible seating. Many teachers are decking out their learning spaces with this new student-centered style. Instead of the traditional classroom with rows and rows of desks, teachers are testing the waters with a variety of seating arrangements. And guess what, IT WORKS!

Stools, stability balls, bean bags, couches, rockers, plastic bins, you name it.

Students love it, and that's exactly what flexible-seating is about. Happier kids >healthier kids > better engagement > better results. What's there to beat? The facts don't lie. Physical activity has been proven over and over again, to improve academic performance. If kids can't sit still for 8 hours straight, then maybe we shouldn't expect them to!

This is why I am asking for four bean bags to help with the transformation of my room. The domes will help my students be active on rainy days also! No more movie time! We will be able to play games inside and get moving!!!
