My Students

I have the pleasure of going to work everyday with an amazing group of energetic, social, curious and hardworking children. They love technology, hands on activities, working together and getting comfy with a good book. I recently had one young lady writing an opinion piece on why she thought reading was the best part of school. She said that she loved finding a cozy spot to settle into with a just right book. She continue to write to me about her new favorite series and how happy she was about our reading workshop. That is why I love what I do and the kids that I work with!

My Project

I would really appreciate your help in supporting the flexible seating options in my classroom. I have been slowly introducing different areas throughout the last few years and the students love it! The kids are excited to get to work through each station at the beginning of the year to see what will work best for them. The options give them the opportunity to take more ownership of their learning. My students are learning at an early age to make good choices that will support their learning style. Adding the Flex-Space Comfy Floor Seats will be a great addition to our class library for independent reading, book clubs and group work. The floor seats will provide an opportunity to students to find a 'just right spot' to meet with their partners or book clubs when conferring with each other.
