My Students

My students come from a high poverty environment. I have twenty students in my classroom from ages 6-7. They are eager to learn and enjoy different types of activities. The students do not have many resources at home to use, so school is the only place they will have the opportunity to experience different types of literature and technology.

Children at this age love to learn and my children are no different.

They are kind and respectful to each other and their teachers. It is our pleasure to have them in class with us.

My Project

My students would love to have flexible seating in their classroom! They would love to be able to pick whether they sit in a regular chair, or a bouncy seat. Many students need to move while learning. This will help them focus during the lesson.

Anything we can do together, to make sure our children can be successful, is worth doing and my children are so worth it!

They are young and love to move while I am teaching. It helps them be able to focus on the lesson, but still keep their bodies moving. They would truly love these six bouncy seats.
