My Students

I work in a small, rural school in Illinois. We are a Title I school located in a low-income area, with over 50% of our students receiving free or reduced-price​ lunch. Our students are eager to learn despite their economic situations.

This year I have fourteen wonderful students who love to learn.

As with all classes, I have a variety of learning styles and abilities in my room. It has been a joy watching them make breakthroughs in their education. Our class is small in size but big in personality.

My Project

I decided to move to a flexible seating classroom this year and I am loving it! More importantly, the kids love it more than me. They get to decide where they will sit and can move to more comfortable seating during work or reading times.

Math is more fun when you can write on the table to solve your problems!

The one whiteboard table I currently have is the favorite place to sit. Students use it to brainstorm writing and work math problems without wasting paper. I need another whiteboard table to help give students more seating options in the room.
