My Students

I feel incredibly honored to be my students' teacher. Every day, my students come to school, ready to learn, and they always try their best in anything they put their minds to. The students at our school do not all come from financially and emotionally stable backgrounds, therefore, I make a huge effort to make the 3rd grade classroom a positive, safe learning environment. These students are the first to cheer each other on when they do something right or help each other in times of need. I am proud of how far these students have come.

My Project

These flexible seating options give students in today's classroom the opportunity to learn in their own learning style. Flexible seating helps students, especially those who struggle sitting at desks for a period of time, the choice of choosing a comfortable sitting option to help them focus better. Students in today's classrooms have a difficult time learning the "old fashion" way that the past generations have been taught to do.

With your help, my students would take ownership of their learning by choosing the best seating option for them.

By providing my students with a couch, low chairs, and pillow, my students would be incredible grateful!
