My Students

Ours is a high poverty district plagued with perpetual budget cuts. Our students come from working families and a community blessed with the diversity of many countries and cultures.

My students are intensely curious language learners with high ambitions.

Many come from families affected by what we only witness on the news: conflict in other countries, natural disasters, and the ever-present burden of socioeconomic challenges. And yet, our students show up to school every day, ready to learn, intent on working to find a better way for themselves, their families and their community.

My Project

As a teacher of high-energy learners from kindergarten to fourth grade, I have seen the agony of students confined to heavy, unwieldy chairs on a daily basis. I've watched how they naturally attempt to rock, sway or turn with traditional chairs, only to see the chair give way, or interrupt the flow of learning with a loud noise.

The benefits of lightweight wobble chairs are countless: they provide an outlet for our high-energy students, they can create their own learning space anywhere in the classroom, and create a fun learning environment.

The students in my room take full advantage of the wobble chairs I acquired from previous projects, and the difference is significant. With an ever increasing classroom, I want to make wobble chairs available to all my students.
