My Students

"Pick me! Ooo...ooo... I know the answer!" exclaims one excited 7th grader in my ELA class as he is bouncing in the desk. This would be one example of everyday life at our middle school classroom. Our school is nestled in rural Georgia in the small agricultural town with 90% of our population receiving free lunch. My students are from various backgrounds and academic abilities. These are the best students on the planet because they hold my heart and future in their hands.

My Project

Movement for my students in the classroom is a must! By providing my students with flexible seating (wobble chairs and exercise ball chairs) will help with students that have attention deficiency as well as my students with learning disabilities. These special seating options will help my students with focus and, therefore, improve the classroom environment as a whole. Reading and writing will become easier by providing an energy outlet making way for learning to happen! This seating will be inviting for students who otherwise struggle to sit still in a traditional desk. We can bounce and wobble into learning with your help!
