Comfortable & Cozy

My Students

There is never a dull moment when you have the privilege of teaching nine and ten year old students. The students that surround me are thought provoking and curious individuals who are resilient in the face of adversity and always seems to find the positive in every situation.

While my students are small they are mighty and fierce, and come to school everyday with a smile on their face and an appetite to learn.

Our school is nestled in a working class neighborhood in the Kansas City Metropolitan area. Most students who attend our school live with a single parent, grandparents, or other family members while their parent/guardian work multiple jobs to try and make ends meet.

While their life situation can be overwhelming at times, these kids absolutely love school and the environment that has been created for them within our classroom. We use a variety of innovative practices incorporating movement and small group learning as well as emphasizing exploratory learning through Genius Hour and other various inquiries. These students are our future, and they deserve nothing short of the very best.

My Project

As schools shift their paradigm from a traditional style of learning to a more innovative mindset, classroom seating has become more and more of a focus. No longer are students required to sit in neat rows where learning is teacher directed, regulated to individuals, and where talking is frowned upon.

Flexible seating gives students the opportunity to take control of their learning by creating an educational environment that fits all learning styles.

This means students have the ability to sit comfortably is a style best suited for their learning needs. Think coffee house seating within the classroom.

This would look like a big rug, a low positioned, but adjustable table, and blue wobble disk cushions giving students multiple options to be successful in their learning.
