My Students

My students are a unique group of learners because they come from very diverse backgrounds, in a primarily impoverished area in the state of Indiana. My students belong to a Title I, free and reduced-price lunch school in urban Indianapolis.

For my students, Kindergarten is their most formative year for school, as it is their first experience ever being in an academic setting.

Many of my students do not have the patience or stamina for a whole day of learning with just a couple physical activity breaks.

While my students may come to school to get an education, I want them to have fun and be engaged while doing so! When my students can come to school and have an opportunity to learn in a hands-on and active environment, they come to school excited to learn and interact with others!

Please help this dream for my students become a reality, as I strive to make our classroom more active for the energetic students that fill it each day!

My Project

My students are a group of high energy learners this year! As I have worked to implement flexible seating, I have realized that not all rocking stools are created equal. I have spent personal money on seating that has already broken down on us!

Being a five year old makes it hard to focus in class, when you just need to wiggle!

My students have a serious need for movement throughout the day. After all, staying seated any length of time at that age is a challenge. However, Wobble Active Seats, Exercise Balls, and Chair Bounce Bands are a proven way to keep kids engaged and also allow them an outlet for that excess energy.

Help my students get their focus back with these active Seats that will help them to fidget while staying mindful of the lesson!
