My Students

Walt Disney once stated, “If you can dream it, you can do it.” All of my students are unique and special. Every day, they are excited to learn something new. I believe that flexible seating in a small group will help them focus and learn even more.

All of my students can do anything they dream of doing.

I am so honored to work with them every day and help them reach for the stars as they achieve their dreams!

My Project

My students come to school excited to learn! They are full of energy and ready to learn something new. However, students need to move while they are learning. In this project, I am asking for balance balls. These balance balls will be used in a small group setting. The balance balls will be place around a round table. The students will be able to sit on the balance balls during independent work. The balance balls will allow the students to move while they are working, which will help them to focus on what they are learning. This project will help the students to learn and succeed!
