My Students

My classroom this year is a fifth grade room full of high-ability students. Located in Indiana, our students come from varying socioeconomic and personal backgrounds, with nearly sixty percent receiving reduced-price or free lunch. Our school is diverse, as it includes gifted enriched learning, special education, and ABA rooms, preschool, and general education programs. Students from outside of our district can travel to our school to be involved in these special education and gifted programs throughout the year. This year, my split classroom requires me to find texts that can be used for the next two groups, as I may loop with students.

My students are thinkers, builders, artists, and my daily source of laughter.

I have several students with twice-exceptionalities (both gifted and have disabilities). Diversity in our classroom covers these abilities, as well as students from varying cultures.

EWA provides gifted art and band classes, as well as enrichment success periods at the end of the day. There are various clubs and organizations for students to take part in and a phenomenal staff who support each other.

My Project

This project will expand our flexible seating options for our classroom so that my students can feel comfortable and focused during the day. I love giving my learners autonomy and responsibility in making positive decisions about where to sit in the classroom. Alternative seating in our room already includes many options, but with my growing class size more is needed! I am excited to offer more options for students to gather and work collaboratively.

I dream of a classroom where students feel as comfortable as they do in their own homes.

By offering places for them to stretch out, wiggle, collaborate, and complete activities together, our shared space becomes truly OURS. With the bouncing bands, students who are working at standard chairs can still get some wiggles out. With expanded flexible seating comes the need for more storage space for my students' workbooks and supplies. I am hopeful to use the cubicle shelves to create cubbies for my students that helps them remain organized and ready to learn.
