My Students

My students are great! These kids deserve to be able to be comfortable in the classroom and enjoy learning. I believe when you are comfortable in an environment you can begin to let go and learn! Please help my students become better learners.

Each student in my class has a unique learning style.

Every student that enters my classroom is an individual and as such deserves to feel that their learning style is going to be encouraged and guided to enable to students reach their highest potential. Creating a flexible seating will help my students stay engaged and having an engaged classroom makes learning fun!

My Project

We need wobble chairs, lap desks, and adjustable height desk with footrest to help keep my students engaged in learning in my classroom. These materials will be great to help my students gain independence and have the ability to have choices instead of basic seating in desks. The laptop desks will allow the students to work all over the room and be comfortable. The standing desk will allow students to stand-up and the wobble chairs will allow kids to not be stuck in a chair and able to move around.

My project will allow for separate learning spaces and allow students to work cooperatively with others.

Flexible seating allows students to find comfortable positions through the classroom. Comfortable students are calm, focused and productive learners! Please help the future leaders in my room!
