My Students

I am very fortunate to have a loving group of kids. They work hard to encourage each other and to help one another out whenever possible. Whether it is showing someone how to work out a problem, sharing supplies, or praising someone for trying.

My 4th graders are excited to wake up in the morning, come into the classroom, and learn.

They are curious about everything going on around them and work hard to do better than they did before. We strive to make a positive environment where they can learn together.

My Project

Help my students to have alternative seating choices in the classroom. These surf desks will allow students to pick where they want to work in the room, whether in groups or for independent work, with the efficiency of a desktop to work on.

By providing them with more options such as these desks, it will allow students to move around the room and work in other areas, rather than being glued to their desk.

These desks will give them the mobility to move to other areas while still having the comfort of a surface to write and work on.
