A Place for Everything Needed to Learn

My students need quick access to materials in these carts at their tables so the organization of the classroom lets them focus on learning.

My Students

My students represent the entire range of high schoolers, from 9th grade to 12th, from English language learners who just arrived in the U.S. to exuberant theater kids to anxious, high achieving Advanced Placement students. I LOVE working with all my different groups, as each has something wonderful to offer. Freshman are eager to please and willing to get lost in learning something that excites them; sophomores love to flex their new cognitive muscles by arguing about every idea; juniors are driven to do their best with college applications looming; and seniors want to act and be treated as adults, so you can have significant conversations with them. When I tell people I teach high school, I frequently get the reaction of, "Ugh, teenagers!"

I tell these people, "You've got teenagers all wrong; they are wonderful and surprising and funny and hard-working."

My students are willing and able to learn about the world, present and past, and themselves. My job is to facilitate that learning and provide an environment that supports them and removes any possible obstacles to their learning.

My Project

My goal with these drawer carts is to store the materials students need on a daily basis right at their work tables, so the process of getting materials out doesn't waste our learning time. The carts will store whiteboards, markers, large paper, scissors, color-coded cards for voting or categorizing, tissue, scrap paper, and folders of student work.

My students learn best with a variety of activities and changes to routine in every class.

The way I teach, we have several transitions from task to task throughout class. Getting out and putting away the materials for each activity can waste valuable time, and I want every minute focused on learning I can get. With supplies right at their tables, students can get what they need quickly and efficiently.
