My Students

My students are the reason I get up every single day. They are a diverse group of English language learners and general education students who love to come to school everyday to learn. They are unique and motivated ten year olds who deserve to have a learning environment that can have a direct impact on their achievement.

Creating a safe and positive environment has always been my number one priority.

A new goal of mine is to incorporate flexible seating in our classroom to increase student choice and help with sensory input.

My Project

Flexible seating will allow my students to take charge of their learning and make the choices that work best for them. Wobble chairs are for students that need to move a lot. Despite what some people may think, movement actually allows for alertness and attention. I believe that this will help them to focus more which will lead to greater success. Thank you in advance to anyone that donates.

With these new additions to our classroom, students can channel their physical energy in a positive way, allowing them to focus on their work and reach their full potential as learners.
