My Students

My students are amazing change agents with great potential. They live in an urban area with a celebrated diversity and many learning styles . We use technology to enhance learning and make real world connections with European and United States History. They need the freedom to be able to learn while being comfortable. This project will allow that!

They create a great place to teach and a great place to learn.

But they are often constrained by traditional classroom environments.

My Project

A flexible classroom allows students to take charge of their learning and make the choices that work best for them. During independent work times they choose a location in the classroom that works for them. I would like to give my students the chance to be comfortable in their learning environment!

I have students who sit for six periods a day!

If students want to stand, I want them to be able to access their laptops by an adjustable laptop stand, and have the freedom to move around. If they need some comfy seating, I want them to be able to have balance ball chairs. I want to create a learning environment where they can move freely and not be constrained by a chair or table.
