My Students

I teach in a small town in Idaho. My classroom is made up of a diverse group of kids. I have English language learners, military families, low income families, and gifted and talented students. Though my students all come from very different backgrounds, they have become a second family to each other in the classroom setting.

I love their inquisitive minds and seeing how they experiment with ideas and want to learn and discover new things.

They love to connect what we learn in school with how it is related to the world around them. Each child in my classroom absolutely loves learning, although the method and environment in which they learn best may vary. I believe every child can learn given time and opportunity.

My Project

I introduced flexible seating into my classroom last year with only a few options for my students to choose from. I quickly noticed that even with these few options, my students were more engaged and stayed on task longer. We often forget that students need to be able to move and refocus to do their best learning.

As adults, we are given the opportunities to move about (a brain break) to help us refocus, and no one says anything or moves their clip.

However, we often demand that our children sit in the same spot for hours on end and expect them to stay on task. I say that what is good for the goose is good for the gander. A child should be able to move or sit in area of the classroom that meets their learning and academic needs. We need floor cushions, lap desks, and balance balls to provide more flexible seating options in our classroom.
