My Students

Comfortable is not always a word that comes to mind when describing the classroom. A comfortable classroom has a positive effect on student learning and creativity.

Each of my students is unique and I love bringing out the best in them.

As a Special Education Teacher, I teach reading, writing, and math to 26 fourth and fifth grade students. I spend part of my day teaching small groups in their classroom. I am able to pull my students and support their academics with their homeroom teacher. Depending on the skill, I also pull the students out and we work in my classroom.

My Project

Our classroom is bursting at the seams and we need options for small group seating. These Zafu cushions are portable and comfortable. They will be the perfect way to support our small group learning. They will allow us to sit together and still be comfortable in a space-challenged classroom!

All of my students will be beyond thrilled to have a new option for comfortable seating.

Our small group will be able to meet anywhere in the classroom with these new portable cushions. My students will be able to work on their reading, writing, and math while sitting on these cushions. They will have a flexible seat and be able to focus and stay engaged in our lesson.
