My Students

Our third grade classroom is a busy hub where we are learning everyday; not only important content, but also how to interact with each other in a positive and collaborative way.

My students are a culturally and ethnically diverse group of children who inspire me daily.

They attend an arts-themed charter school in which 90% of the students are learning English as a second language and 100% receive free lunch based on their socio-economic status. They are hard workers who are excited about learning, but who need to overcome obstacles at every turn (at home, in school, and in their communities) to achieve their goals. I am continually trying new strategies to engage my students in authentic, engaging learning experiences. This year, we are working on project-based learning, arts integration across the curriculum, and building a love of reading. I am also working to build strong relationships with my students by visiting them at their homes throughout the year. I really love this group of kids. They make me excited to go to work each day!

My Project

In the past year, I have implemented a rotation-based learning model in which the students visit different stations in the classroom to do small group, independent, and collaborative work. These stools will make it much easier for the students to quickly join a station, and to be able to move more easily as they work and interact with one another.

This donation will allow my students more freedom of movement in their learning day, which has a huge impact on their attention, focus, and engagement in learning.

Sitting still in an uncomfortable chair can really limit a student's ability to learn, and these stools will allow more flexibility and fun as they learn throughout the day.
