My Students

My students regularly deal with trauma in many forms: poverty, homelessness, hunger, abuse, imprisonment of family members, etc. Their young minds often find it difficult to concentrate on their studies for any length of time.

All of my students qualify for free and reduced-price lunch.

Often, school meals are the only food they eat in a day. Concentration and putting forth the energy needed for learning is difficult, although they are curious. My students crave new experiences and information.

My students like to experiment with different types of technology and media. I love watching them make connections in our ELA center activities.

My Project

We have been building a flexible seating classroom. We love the differentiation our arrangements provide. We have comfy cushion floor seating; low stools with benches for writing; a picnic table; a cube chair set; and bean bag chairs with lap desks.

We need more options for our taller students to be comfortable.

This square table will allow taller kids to sit on exercise balls or wobble stools--options that will not leave them feeling cramped or too low to the ground.

We know that we have a greater opportunity to reach our full potential when we are not distracted by things like our discomfort. This table means success for many in our classroom.
