My Students

Our school serves students in 6th to 8th grade. These past two years, we have been seeing an increase in enrollment, and our classrooms are full to the max. Our mission at our school is to provide a rigorous education that includes critical thinking, collaboration, and creativity.

In our co-taught classroom, we focus on differentiation to challenge students and to support them.

Focusing on respect, responsibility, and trustworthiness, students learn to become independent motivated learners. In our classroom, we live to think outside of the box and be innovators.

My Project

My students have new desks without their chairs attached. We need chairs, so students can sit at these new desks. Having more seating options will allow my students to each have a chair and give students more choices on the type of chair they want to sit in for the day.

In our classroom we want to give our student options.

Seats is just another option that a student can have to feel like the classroom is really their classroom. My students love being able to choose their seat for the day. We have a few different choices but would like to expand their choices and have enough for all students. These Zynery chair balls will help improve concentration on the work in the classroom.
