My Students

I teach sixteen diverse and enthusiastic Third graders who all love to learn. In our classroom, everyone is a teacher and everyone is a learner. We take learning into our own hands and are excited when we are able to work with new resources.

The heart and soul of my class is creativity and innovation.

Nothing excites my students more than learning something new and applying it to their real life. These students are the future of the 21st century, and with these new tools in our classroom, the possibilities are endless!

My Project

My students thrive when they are able to work in a way that is comfortable for them. Some like to stand, some enjoy wobbling and bouncing, but most of my students enjoy working on the floor. Giving them these options has changed my classroom dynamic and my students have been thriving because of it!

Having these two comfortable seats and floor desk will be such a great addition to my classroom flexible seating options!

While still being able to work on the floor, students will have a sturdy desk to lean on while sitting comfortably on the floor. We thank you in advance for considering our project!
