My Students

Welcome to our 1st grade learning space at Tavola Elementary school located in New Caney Independent School district. Our program gives children from all cultures and various incomes an opportunity to thrive within the boundless walls of impactful education. My incoming energetic 1st graders will be entering my classroom with anticipation and be given the opportunity to learn, discover, and explore.

A child may forget the specific words that you say, but they will never forget the way you make them feel- Maya Angelou.

My personal teaching philosophy is that each student that steps into my classroom will learn and attain skills through multifaceted instruction. Why would you teach as if all students learn the same?

New Caney is a growing suburb outside of Houston with a small town feel. Tavola is a title one school that is committed to preparing our learners for the reality of tomorrow.

My Project

Children need to move. Flexible seating allows them to wobble, rock, lean or stand, which increases oxygen flow to the brain, blood flow and core strength. It also helps keep young minds more alert and focused. The seating options you would be affording them will be used on a daily basis to help stimulate educational growth.

By donating to our project, you will not only help to improve and increase student attention and focus, you will ultimately help to increase their academic achievement.

The products that I have selected will help my students by giving them additional seating options to make more effective learning choices. The wobble stools will allow students to sit at desk but will still allow some movement. These will be extremely beneficial for some students that just need to get the wiggles out. They can also be used as an alternative chair if needed! The comfy floor circle mats will allow for additional comfortable floor seating options. They are lightweight and can be easily used in many areas of the classroom.

I have seen how choice can positively affect my students work and demeanor and hope that the additional options will help us grow even more!
