My Students

My group of 5th grade students in Boston are so special and unique. I work in an inclusive special education classroom filled with smart, witty, exciting boys and girls who are looking to be excited about their learning through the modern, digital world.

These students bring positivity, laughter, challenges, and rewards to their schooling and are always eager to infuse their education with creativity and art.

They love to play games, be outside, and enjoy a sweet treat every now and then.

My Project

Some say having assigned seats helps students focus on their work, instead of where they'll sit. Teachers also argue that it cuts down on distracting talk in the classroom because kids can't choose to sit next to their friends. Students feel empowered by having some degree of choice and control over their environment.

Flexible seating allows students to choose where they work and with whom.

It also allows them to change their location and positions as needed. These stools would empower students to be able to take more control of their learning. I believe this would also help instill responsibility in students as it would force them to be more responsible for their own learning. Flexible seating allows students to find comfortable positions throughout the classroom. Comfortable students are calm, focused, and productive. Students learn better when they have a chance to work together. Traditional desks in rows isolate students from each other.
