My Students

My students are a high energy group who love to be actively engaged in their learning. They enjoy a challenge and finding new and interesting ways to solve problems. They have shown a variety of learning styles and preferences and are excited at being on the cutting edge of education now and into the future.

Teaching in a low-income area has presented many challenges for my students, but you would never hear them use that as an excuse.

These students have shown great dedication to becoming 21st-century learners capable of becoming leaders in the future. The diverse background of many of the students provides a great opportunity to share culture and ideas with one another.

My Project

Many students have a difficult time staying in one location for any extended amounts of time. My goal is to use flexible seating options to help build the stamina and focus of these students who may be struggling to remain attentive in class. I would also love to use the Yoga Balls and Floor Cushions to allow students to find comfortable and unique places to read, write, and discuss topics with their classmates. By providing a variety of chooses and locations, I hope to create a sense of control and choice these students might not always get to experience. A comfortable environment creates an atmosphere where students feel free to explore their ideas and these seating options are one way to help start them down this path.
