My Students

This is my 9th year in the classroom and I have the honor of teaching and bonding with 23 energetic, talented and curious kindergarten students! These students contribute to the success of our school, which is surrounded by a strong, involved and diverse community.

My students are always seeking to discover something new and investigate a topic further.

There is a wide range of learners at our school including English Language Learners, students with special needs and so much more in between! Each student learns in a different way and establishing a warm and inviting environment can open so many doors for all students to be life long learners!

My Project

A clean and warm setting is essential for student comfort and achievement. Flexible seating allows students to take charge of their learning and make the choices that work best for them. During reading and independent work times they choose a location in the classroom that works for them, almost always aiming for a carpet area which is more comfortable. Making sure students feel at ease is an essential component in motivating them to learn. I have noticed amazing differences in my students when they are given a choice in their seating and I would love for them to have these cushions to make that choice even simpler.

My students are noticeably more engaged in their book and less disruptive of their peers when they have a comfortable place to sit.

The products that I have selected will help my students by giving them additional seating options to make more effective learning choices. The rug and diffuser will be great additions to our library corner to further make that area inviting and calming for our avid readers. The cushion floor seats and cushioned chairs will allow for additional comfortable floor seating options throughout the classroom. They are lightweight and can be easily used in many areas and will be very easy to keep clean. The iRobto Roomba will ensure that we walk into a clean classroom every morning, ready to learn!

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!
