My Students

Have you ever met fourth graders? Little bundles of energy! Nothing excites them more than getting to touch, see, and build their way to understanding.

As one of the top performing charter schools in the state, our school is working daily to help our students achieve their full potential.

The students in my year-round urban charter school are 95% low income. They attend school from 8 am to 5 pm daily. The staff at our charter school works diligently within our rigorous curriculum to help education come alive!

My students struggle with issues that often fall outside the scope of understanding. From poverty to food insecurity, homelessness to incarcerated parents, they face head on many challenges that would make adults crumble. Even with these challenges, they come to school each day trying to put their best foot forward and grow as students, in academics, and as leaders.

My Project

Like most fourth graders, my students struggle to contain their energy throughout the school day. Many students, especially students with attention issues, have trouble staying seated in the traditional chairs available in my classroom. These flexible seating options will allow my struggling students to find alternative seating options, like wobble chairs and floor seating, in order to better focus and complete work. Students will be able to complete work in small groups, at their desks, and on the floor around the classroom with these wobble chairs and floor seats. Having options for seating will allow these students to find success in the classroom.
