My Students

"EVERYONE should have the opportunity to learn in a positive environment, to enjoy the process, and feel comfortable and content within in" -Barry Saide

Both social and educational learning happens simultaneously at any time during the day.

Our classroom is nestled in a public education school with approximately 940 students of mixed ethnic and social-economic status. We are a Title 1 school and serve predominantly the middle-low to low income families. We are an incredible school that delves its students the arts and encourages collaborating among all students regardless of ethnic background, economic status, or academic and learning style.

My Project

My students will use these Hokki Stools for comfort while working in the classroom. Using these stools will help my students to define personal space. These stools will also help my students concentrate during a duration of the day while enjoying being comfortable while working.

With more comfort during the day, our students only see the benefits as their grades increase throughout the year.

They will enjoy sitting in the chair which will help them concentrate more.
