My Students

My students come from varying backgrounds; however, one thing they all have in common is the desire to fit in and feel safe. Once they feel that you care for them, they will work hard in class.

My students are excited to be successful in our classroom.

They are very goal-oriented and work hard to accomplish the goals we set together. It's extremely rewarding to see each of my students light up with excitement when their hard work pays off.

My Project

Many of my students are from homes where they are not encouraged to read. Providing them with multiple opportunities to engage with books is a priority for me. I want my students to fall in love with reading; and in order to do that, my students need to feel comfortable.

Flexible seating chairs and lap desks will allow my students to dive into wonderful books while being comfortable in our classroom.

Students will have the option of sitting in a traditional chair, sitting on one of our new flexible seating chairs, or sitting on the rug and using a lap desk. Comfy while we work!
