My Students

My preschool students are energetic, curious, and full of chatter. Many come to school ready to learn new things and can't wait to see what projects we have planned for them.

Our school is the first community school in Yuma County that serves students who come from diverse sets of backgrounds, experiences, and low income households; which includes general education students as well as inclusion students.

Some of our students require more movement and hands-on activities which makes it hard for them to stay engaged while sitting in a hard uncomfortable chair for periods of time.

Together we create a safe classroom environment where students enjoy learning, creating, exploring, building and experimenting. But most of all they enjoy being able to be themselves and be comfortable in their learning environment.

My Project

Flexible seating for my preschoolers will help them stay focused and engaged. Providing my students with different seating options allows them to choose what is comfortable for them.

Preschoolers need to move around and being able to have seating that allows them to rock, bounce, wobble and lean will help them feel some control in choice, allow for movement and also positional changes.

Choices in seating will also allow for movement of location when needed even at this beginning age. Flexible seating will benefit our preschoolers because they can sit in a more comfortable, more relaxed setting while encouraging positive behavior.
