My Students

My students are from a small rural community in southern Oklahoma. Students at my school are inquisitive, creative, and compassionate. They're eager to get out into the world and explore all that life has to offer. I inspire approximately 150 students on a daily basis and their depth of knowledge is inspiring.

Our small district consists of three schools, all of which work together toward a common goal: helping our students reach their full potential as lifelong learners and responsible, contributing citizens.

My Project

Today's school classrooms are more than static learning spaces. They're ground zero for teaching 21st Century Learning principles. That's why creating an inspiring 21st century classroom environment with the right furnishings has never been more important. Put simply, skip trendy chairs and desks. Future-proof classrooms by choosing furnishings that are durable and sensible in design.

Much of this learning doesn't come naturally to students Teachers must guide them, providing abundant opportunities to practice and show that learning is engaging, participatory and fun.

It begins by removing physical hurdles. The classroom space and it's coordinated furnishings should shape--even direct--the learning environment.

Learning spaces are of utmost importance. It is the first thing you notice when entering a classroom. I want to transform schools from what they were in 1916 to what they should be in 2018. We need schools to work for kids and a major obstacle in many places is the space. These flexible seating items will enable to change that mindset and conversation.

We have listed durable chairs on wheels or light weight seating that students can quickly arrange into groups for collaborative zone. I listed chairs that offer generous support and directional movement for comfort. There are balance ball chairs and inflatable chairs for soft seating for reading or independent learning.
