My Students

My students are such energetic, curious, intelligent children, who possess such a natural drive to learn. They are students who truly just cannot wait to share what they are thinking; with the most eager and wide eyes they will wave their hands in the air at me, truly excited to be apart of every lesson we have that day.

We are a community in our classroom; my students understand the importance of working together, and teamwork has been so important to us this school year.

They are the kids that let each other know they're proud of the other when they've solved a tricky problem, and will write a quick note to a friend to cheer them up. They understand the importance of learning that fair doesn't always look equal, a big accomplish for a 1st grader :)

This year my class has worked so hard to overcome obstacles, and as their teacher I have put so much energy into trying to provide everything they need so they could learn. My hope is that with this Donors Choose project, my next group of 1st graders will have every tool necessary to support their own learning.

My Project

The impact these seating options will have on my students would be immense; the ability to choose a space in their classroom that reflects the learning style that helps them succeed shows my students that their needs are valid and heard. I know my students are bright, kind, and driven, and I know these are the tools that will allow their academics to shine the brightest.

We all learn in different ways, and a child having access to multiple independent work options in their learning environment is absolutely vital to their academic success.

It improves focus, helps maintain stamina, and makes them feel comfortable and more at home in their own classroom.

These tools are what will make their school year so incredibly successful!
