My Students

My students are constantly growing and learning in our school. Our school is also a personalized learning school. The idea of personalized learning is that ultimately each kid moves forward at their own pace and at their own style so they can work to their strengths, but also work on their weaknesses. My students are eager to learn!

My students are 4th and 5th graders at a low income school, with free and reduced-price lunch.

With having a high poverty rate at my school, it can be difficult for students to get the opportunities that they deserve! There are 60 students in my classroom and I want to make sure that each one gets to experience a comfortable learning environment.

My Project

Each year we continue to work towards a personalized learning environment for our students. My classroom needs comfortable seating options, such as bean bags, cozy chairs and cushioned stools.

This will help give a variety of options for my students so that all students can learn in a comfortable environment.

Every day I let my students pick where they sit in the classroom so that each child can be successful and enjoy their learning experiences. I hope by having a variety of options that each child will begin to know what they best need to learn each and every day in my classroom!
