My Students

I teach fifth grade language arts and social studies. I love my kiddos and am passionate about helping them develop their reading, writing, critical thinking and communication skills, while instilling in them a life-long love of learning.

My students are enthusiastic learners and voracious readers and writers of multiple genres.

Our classroom is a caring and comfortable environment where students feel safe and free to discuss and write about topics that interest them. Thank you for taking the time to learn a little bit about us!

My Project

I'm looking to provide my students with a variety of flexible seating options to help improve focus and engagement in our language arts/social studies classroom. My students are voracious readers and writers of multiple genres and would benefit from more comfortable seating options for increased learning in our classroom.

A few benefits of flexible seating include increased student achievement, improved physical health, feeling of empowerment as a result of student choice, increased sense of community and collaboration, as well as a greater commitment to learning.

Adding alternative seating options such as couches, comfortable chairs and tables are just a few examples of the items I would like to add to our classroom to achieve this.
