My Students

I teach an amazing group of diverse second graders. My students are creative, thoughtful, and eager to learn; however, don't get me wrong, they are rambunctious, curious, inquisitive, and full of energy.

They love activities that are hands-on and that involve themselves using problem-solving skills.

It is imperative that my students gain as much knowledge as they can through a variety of learning styles. I want to make this year amazing, memorable, and productive for each of my unique students.

My Project

Learning environments can have a direct impact on student achievement. My students feel empowered when having control over their environment.

Children need to move.

Flexible seating increases oxygen flow to the brain, blood flow, and core strength. It also keeps young minds more alert and focused. From the experiences in my classroom, an uncomfortable student is a distracted and unproductive student. Flexible seating will encourage my students to find the best spot to stay calm, focused, and productive. This opportunity will allow my students to quickly and easily pair up, work in small groups, or discuss as a whole class without moving mountains of heavy desks. Providing flexible seating for my second graders will create a fair, fun, relaxed, and engaging classroom.
