My Students

My students come from a variety of backgrounds and many of them are from low-income families. They are intelligent, creative, funny, and always keep me on my toes! Many of my students receive special education services as well. My students love to learn and I am always looking for new and exciting ways to keep them engaged.

I have 25 students but our class is constantly growing.

In my classroom, we are a family who learn and grow together. In addition to Math and Science, I teach my students courtesy, respect, and the importance of a strong work ethic.

My Project

My students need flexible seating to engage and excite them! Flexible seating will allow my students to choose where they would like to learn for the day. They will have choices such as bean bag chairs, cushions, lap desks and more.

My students have a variety of different learning styles and special needs.

The students I teach are seven and eight years old. They have a lot of energy and do not enjoy sitting at a desk for eight hours each day. Flexible seating will allow them to learn and focus in comfort.

I want my students to identify how and where they learn best and give them the power to choose.
