My Students

My students are a group of hard-working individuals. They are truly the best! We are from a low poverty area that is struggling economically. This is the same area and elementary school I grew up in. A lot of the students I have don't get an opportunity to get out and be exposed to the world. I work at the largest elementary school in the district; I just want my students to be up to date and exposed to different types of technology.

My Project

This project is all about seating! My class sizes vary all throughout the day. My class setup changes from class to class as well. My classes change seven times a day K-6. I would like to offer a better setup for my students. Some projects which could be one to three classes a day require a lot of floor space and the stools would best to support this type of classroom. They are stackable and much smaller than the traditional classroom chairs that we are using right now. I like the idea of being able to stack these chairs up and move them out of the way so we can launch catapults or drive robots!

Students will have more freedom over how they choose to learn.

Students will be able to move these stools if they prefer to stand while learning. Students will be able to move them out of the way to evaluate their models. This class is so different every hour and all students learn differently. Stand up, sit down, drive and test out your robot, or placing ramps up around the classroom for collision tests. This is the type of classroom that needs quick access to a lot of floor space. Every single class every hour is completely different. Stackable stools would make it so much better!
