My Students

My students come to school energetic and ready to learn every day! Our class is made up of students from a wide range of backgrounds and varying learning abilities. Our community was rocked by Hurricane Harvey last year, school is an escape for some students.

Our class motto is: Don't Forget To Be Awesome!

The one thing all of my students enjoy is learning in an active environment. Sitting in a hard and uncomfortable chair all day is tough for adults, imagine how 4th graders feel. I would like the opportunity to offer my students flexible seating options that will allow them more options for comfort and engagement!

My Project

I have seen a HUGE difference in the level of engagement in my students since I started flexible seating! Students are able to get their wiggles out and still stay focused on their work.

While my standing desk is always a popular choice, I find that my scholars get tired throughout the day and usually end up siting on the floor under the table.

I would love to give them the option to sit or stand with a stool that will accommodate the higher table.

The yoga balls we use are a little small and have been deflating quickly. New larger ones weighted with sand will really help us focus and avoid the distraction of reinflating them every other day.
