My Students

My students are from a Title 1 district in southern Mississippi. These students come from diverse backgrounds. They are energetic, creative, and eager to learn! These children are excited to learn new things and to foster creativity in their peers. They love to read, especially to one another! My students come to school everyday excited for the day and the new things they will learn. They have a joy and exuberance that motivates and inspires me to be the best teacher I can be!

My Project

I believe that students need to feel secure and comfortable in their environment before learning can occur. Students need to be able to move around the classroom and feel comfortable while doing so. These flexible seating items will allow my students to have a choice in the type of seating they prefer. I feel that these flexible seating items will foster a comfortable and relaxed culture in my classroom that will allow my students the security to express their creativity and eagerness for learning. I hope to build a classroom community that is engaging and exciting for all of my students!
