My Students

The students in our K-5 building love to learn! They walk into our building every day ready to be engaged and fill their brains with new knowledge. The students in our school come from a variety of backgrounds. We are in a school where 90% of our school receives free and reduced-price lunch. These students are ready for the 21st century learning environment that helps them develop skills. These skills will prepare them for what the future holds.

I teach on a Title I campus, which means many of the students come from a low income household and 90% of the school gets free or reduced price lunch.

Many of my students were severely impacted by Hurricane Harvey last August. Many students have been displaced and are still displaced from the hurricane.

My students have really big hearts and care a lot for each other. They love to learn and tell others all about the learning that they have done.

My Project

Give kids a special place to sit—with cozy chairs that provide flexible classroom seating wherever you need it! Flexible seating allows students to take charge of their learning and make the choices that work best for them. During independent work times they choose a location in the classroom that works for them. Currently my students are choosing to work in a variety of locations in our room such as: at different tables, sitting under tables with clip boards, or sitting or laying on the floor with a clip board. Making sure students are comfortable is an essential component in motivating them. I have noticed amazing differences in my students when they are given a choice in their seating. They almost always make good choices about where they sit, are more engaged, and get more work completed than when they are just sitting at their desk.

My students are noticeably more engaged in their work and less disruptive of their peers when they are given a choice of where to work and collaborate.

The comfy floor seats that I have selected will help my students by giving them additional seating options to make more effective learning choices.They are lightweight and can be easily used in many areas of the classroom.

Thank you so much for your support!!!! It is greatly appreciated!
