My Students

My middle school students are full of spunk! They are crazy about hands-on, engaging, and active lessons that allow them to think outside the box. Although math is not the best subject to them, they come eager to learn. As a class, we have fun and make learning fun.

Every opportunity to get out of the desk is always an excitement, regardless if it's sitting on the floor.

They love when I rearrange the classroom and add personal touches that make the room welcoming.

My Project

Students spend most of their day in a classroom filled with uncomfortable desk. Seating arrangements outside of desk will allow the students to see the learning environment as more than a classroom. They are able to move about and be comfortable in their settings. It will also help my students who have difficulties with sitting, have the flexibility.

A classroom can able to be comfortable and home-like.

With the help of Bounce Ball Seats, the students can move about and collaborate freely with their peers. This allows for both behavioral freedom and excitement went the students enter my classroom. Please help bridge home and school.
