My Students

I teach First Grade at a historically under served and culturally diverse PK-5 school nestled in Northeast Portland. We are an International Baccalaureate (IB) and Mandarin Immersion school with many diverse learning opportunities for our students. It is this diversity that makes our school such a vibrant place for learning.

My students are curious, creative and eager to learn.

They come from different backgrounds and welcome everyone into our community. They support, encourage and challenge each other daily. They’re full of questions about the world and stories to tell from their own personal experiences.

Their love for learning can be seen as they set goals for themselves and persevere through challenging tasks.

My Project

Flexible seating gives students the opportunity to sit somewhere that is most successful for them. Having a variety of seating choices for students on where they can sit or stand in a classroom is beneficial because it gives them agency when determining how they learn best.

Sitting at a traditional desk doesn’t meet the needs of all students.

Some students need flexible seating options to be successful. I have many students that prefer to sit on the floor while working, but it becomes uncomfortable and difficult to work in groups.

This is why I’d like to give my students a low-to-the-ground table with soft chairs that will provide a flexible seating option. Having additional seating options in our classroom would allow my students the freedom to choose a spot that will help them focus and work comfortably. Thank you so much for supporting this project!
