My Students

My students are inquisitive, thoughtful, and excited about learning! They thrive in an environment that fosters creativity and deep thinking. These students are always up for a challenge, and embrace mistakes as a part of learning. Each student in my class has been classified as a gifted and talented learner.

Though academics come easy to my students, they have varying needs that you can assist them in meeting.

Studies show that gifted students often have difficulties with focus. My students are in need of a classroom environment that fosters deep learning and allows them to focus during challenging tasks.

Our school is located in Staten Island, New York and welcomes over one-thousand children each day. By donating to this project, you will not only reach 32 students this coming year. You will reach hundreds of students for years to come!

My Project

The furniture and seating options I am requesting for my students will be utilized on a daily basis. Research supports that these flexible seating options make a huge difference in a students' education. Flexible seating has the power to increase students' engagement and focus! Research also supports that when students are given the power to choose a working spot that is beneficial to them, they are more engaged in their work. Most importantly, they are happier in their classroom!

Imagine a classroom where students are comfortable, both physically and mentally.

Flexible seating allows students to work in an environment that is comfortable and conducive to learning. Help us say goodbye to traditional desks and chairs, and hello to a classroom full of opportunity!
