My Students

My students are bright, curious, creative, and eager for learning opportunities! They love hands-on and active activities, and they also have lots of drive to work hard. We are a Title I school in Everett, WA., and our classroom is an English Language Learner (ELL) shelter model classroom. This means over half of the class are ELL students.

All of my students love to learn, but they all need different tools and resources to learn best.

I am so lucky to have a group of students who are eager to work hard for themselves and each other!

My Project

Flexible seating provides opportunities for students with different learning needs to choose the best option for them. Currently, my students can choose floor pillows and clip boards, bean bag chairs, their desks, and different tables around the room. The students love to sit on the floor in the comfy bean bag chairs, so they would also love these comfy floor seats to use around the room.

The students are much more engaged and excited when they are given choices and control over their learning, and their environment is a huge part of their learning experience.

The options the students have for seating will positively impact their learning!
