My Students

Our classroom is comprised of 17 bright, creative and energetic students who have a passion for wanting to learn more. They love to engage with hands-on activities and fun, movement games to understand the new skills they learn in our classroom.

When my students walk into our classroom, they are ready to learn and face their day head-on.

As a teacher, it is truly amazing to watch them grow academically and socially as the school year progresses, taking several chances to answer questions or be part of our class discussion! They are truly impressive and bright students that shine daily in my classroom!

My Project

When it comes to seating choices in our classroom, there are various types of seating that can fit the needs of all elementary children by having flexibility with different seats. Children can focus better on their work or during reading time in a seat that is not the traditional school chair, along with getting in some exercise.

By having different flexible seating choices in our classroom, it can allow students to get some movement which they all need, along with helping to strengthen their muscles.

Flexible seating choices can also help students to stay focused and increase blood flow and oxygen to their brains, keeping them alert and help with concentration.
