My Students

My students started the school year as a class of 28. I was brought in to help create, facilitate and educate a class of 13, so that, these children may focus on learning and not the lack of space for 28 5th graders.

I have known them briefly, but I know that they are bright, active and inquisitive.

They LOVE to read and discuss books. They are also very intrigued about writing and sharing their thoughts and opinions. They are curious about the new teacher in the room and eager to be a part of our new class.

I look forward to getting to know my students in a greater depth. I also am eager to watch them explore and grow in their skills, self and education.

My Project

I have been hired 10 days into the school year to create an engaging, safe and exciting classroom. My classroom has the necessities: tables, chairs, bookcases and a teacher's desk.

However, research shows that providing choice and flexible seating to students enhances their learning by allowing them to decide how they want to learn and where they want to learn.

These items would be in spaces in the classroom that would used during independent work where a child could choose to read quietly, work diligently with a partner, engage in discourse while participating in math games, or choosing to write in a secluded area, to name a few activities. The potential for all that we can do with additional and flexible seating in our room is limitless and truly exciting.
