My Students

I teach reading to five different classes. My seventh-grade students are eclectic in their interests and abilities. I have students who represent all levels of learning--high, medium, and low. They also vary in economic status.

The students crave to learn by exploring topics that interest them and are relevant to their lives.

They sincerely want to learn and simultaneously express their unique and intriguing personalities. Voice and choice, along with interdisciplinary projects integrating their knowledge, are requested.

I sincerely cherish their humor; they are always making me smile and strive to reach their needs. Since I am a reading teacher, I love their stamina and desire to read. There are many times that they beg me for time to read or listen to an audio book, which delights me to no end.

My Project

My students want to experience interdisciplinary, project-based learning. They crave to combine their unique personalities and knowledge in order to produce personally-relevant demonstrations of their learning.

They need flexibility in seating in order to generate collaborative ideas and meaningful results.

The triangular tables will allow for various configurations and group amounts. Often classroom furniture dictates how groups can be arranged, but these seating arrangements will adapt to the students' needs, not the other way around. These tables can easily be moved to accommodate all learning configurations.

My classroom arrangement should cultivate learning, whether individual, partner, or in different-sized groups. You can help make it possible!
