As a teacher at one of the most diverse public schools in San Francisco Unified School District, my students come from a wide range of backgrounds and communities. Over half of our students are from low income households, and many are English language learners or qualify for special education services. As a teacher, I strive to help my students fall in love with learning while helping them develop skills and strategies.
Lovers of reading, passionate learners, fun-loving kiddos, and future leaders, these are the students that I teach.
Representing the diversity of the city that we live in, my students are as dynamic in their lives as they are in their learning. This is a critical point in their lives as students because it is when they develop their passion for learning. Help them along the way!
With a classroom full of energized kindergarteners, I like to give the students choices throughout the day. One of them is through flexible seating.
By having alternative seating in the classroom students are free to make a choice of which seating arrangement is best for their learning.
By giving them a choice I am helping them begin to learn how to make appropriate choices to make them more successful in the classroom. This also helps reduce the amount of behavior problems that can happen in the classroom. By having alternative seating students have their own space to spread out and have room to work. Having alternative seating also helps with engagement which allows students to become more successful.
By donating you will help the learning environment of our classroom by giving my students more choice and empower them to be successful.
