My Students

My students are inquisitive, thoughtful and full of energy! They love engaging and challenging activities that allow them to think outside the box and move about! They come to school each day expecting to follow a routine. Their energy and enthusiasm quickly ignites when new things and opportunities present themselves. The students are excited and willing to take on new challenges.

There are times when my students need a place in the classroom that suites their way of learning.

Flexible seating will give them this option.

Our school is part of the Metro-Detroit area. Many of my students reside in single low income households. It's important that school is a place where they can feel supported, relaxed and care free.

Each child wants to do their best. They want to show me what they can do. It's important to create an environment in which they learn best. I incorporate a variety of learning strategies, group work, and alternative seating to ensure that each student's needs are met, while they are here with me. I am so fortune to be able to be a part of their success.

My Project

My students will now be able to move about throughout the day to complete and participate in tasks to enhance their overall academic experience. They will no longer be confined to a restricted area in the classroom. They will have physical freedom to release academic freedom.

The students will feel a sense of empowerment, the ability to choose physical freedom and academic creativity.

I am excited to see how this new freedom will encourage new academic heights. The students will be able to self select the best learning space in the classroom that will allow them to complete the task at hand.
