My Students

I teach in a midsize elementary school consisting of approximately 725 students. Our school has a wide range of students coming from very different lifestyles. The diversity my students are exposed to is my favorite part of our school!

Our school challenges students to find their strengths.

We celebrate all growth, but also encourage students to help each other by using their strengths. The pride that a student feels when they see someone else succeed because of their help is the best! They all inherently care about one another and continually make an effort to improve in all aspects.

My Project

I would like to offer my students flexible seating options in our classroom. I have started allowing my students to move more around the room to work this year and I have seen such growth in their attention, understanding, and overall attitude towards learning. At this point, I can only offer my students the ability to find a comfortable spot with a couple of pillows where they can sit or lay down as they work. The items I have requested would allow so many more options and also the ability for more students to participate.

It has been talked about for years that students have different learning styles.

But up until recently, the location of their learning has never been discussed. While some students will still prefer a traditional seating location, others will learn best when they can get away from a traditional desk. For example, I have put together​ this entire project while laying on the floor in my living room with my laptop. If we, as adults, like to use flexible options, why wouldn't we want to offer these to our students?
