My Students

I have been working in a very diverse area for the past 4 years. My students come from very different backgrounds and are very limited in the materials needed to continue growth and learning. Even so, my students love to learn and are always very excited to explore their ideas in my classroom.

I want to see my students succeed in a safe and nurturing environment.

I would love to be able to provide more for them each day! I want to provide as much as I can for them every day!

My Project

I would like to provide more seating options for my students during the next upcoming school year. I want to provide options that are flexible and ones that will allow them to reach success.

Some of the flexible seating options I would like to add are beanbags, wobble chairs, balance balls, wobble cushions, and comfy floor seats.

These flexible seating options will allow for more movement in the classroom! They will have more control over what works best for them and add to more choices inside my class. They will be able to use their option throughout the day, but specifically for reading and writing purposes!
