My Students

We are a Title 1 school located in Baltimore City. Our population consists of urban youth. Many families lack the funds to provide some of the general supplies necessary for learning. However theses shortcomings do not affect my students' attitude or willingness to learn. They are highly competitive and want to succeed. Many are intrinsically motivated and look outside the classroom to further their learning or quench their curiosities. They are eager to please and try to meet every goal I set for them. Their infectious energy and enthusiasm is uplifting and fulfilling. There isn't a day that goes by that I wish I could do more for them.<3

My Project

Children need to be comfortable when reading and learning. By providing the students with flexible seating, the students our allowed the opportunity to sit close to me and listen while I read engaging stories. I especially enjoy that part of my instruction. It is so rewarding to hear the children gasp with surprise or cheer during my readings.

Additionally, the flexible seating will allow the children to sit around the room and form small groups to discuss projects.

Or, they can spread out and read comfortably independently.

The extra big beanbag chair will be part of my calming center. Sometimes the children need time to readjust and reflect. The beanbag will provide a soothing space for them to regroup.

Thank you for taking the time to read about my project. I appreciate you taking the time and hope you will feel the same as me!
