My Students

My students in Stockton, California come to class each day eager to learn and ready to persevere through challenges they face on a daily basis. They collaborate with each other throughout the day and are constantly moving throughout the class. Each student learns in a different way and requires different strategies and interventions to be successful with the curriculum. They never give up and show so much grit in class.

Our class is composed of variety of students and it makes our class an amazing community.

They all come from different backgrounds and cultures, and we learn from each other. Their home lives are not always the best, and they really rely on each other to come in and be enthusiastic about their learning. They hold each other accountable for their learning and their learning environment. They follow a class charter that they created in the beginning of the year, and they make sure that everyone in the class is feeling loved, happy, enthusiastic, and extraordinary! They are an awesome group of kids that put a smile on my face each and every day!

My Project

We are a class of diverse students who all learn in different ways. We are asking for your help to help build a class with diverse seating to match. Students will use the different furniture in addition to the desks provided in the classroom to have the choice of where they work throughout the day. Students are always being told how to sit and what to do with their bodies. As their teacher, I would like to give them the choice to be comfortable while learning, to encourage them to stay focused. Something as simple as a floor table or a nice pillow, can improve their learning in the classroom.

By donating to our project, you will not only help students focus and stay engaged, but you will help them make academic growth.

Flexible seating encourages students to share the space in the classroom, and keeps them responsible for their work. The biggest benefit for the students is it keeps them moving throughout the day. When children are not allowed to move, they are more distracted and can become disruptive in the classroom. Comfortable students are calm, focused, and productive. Please help our class perform at their highest potential by donating to our project!
