My Students

The students at our school are involved in dynamic activities and have the opportunity of learning academics through the Fine Arts. While in the traditional classroom they also learn about music, piano, dance, art and theater. Our students are thinkers, creators and innovators.

My students learn to be creative and outside of the box thinkers on a daily basis.

We have many different learners in our classrooms and need to help each and every single one of them reach their potential.

My Project

Every person is built differently and we all learn in different ways. Desks and chairs make moving around in classrooms difficult and most students don't like to sit for long periods of time. Constant movement is important in a classroom. I want to create a classroom environment where students feel excited to come to class.

I picked stability balls, balance stools, cushions and lap desks to give them the opportunity to make decisions and be more autonomous.

Flexible seating makes students more actively engaged in class discussion, makes them physically fit and helps with special needs while developing a sense of community. Most importantly it helps with students' attention spans.
