My Students

Do you remember getting hooked on a series of books as a child?

Think of the anticipation and excitement you felt waiting for and then finally reading the prized next installment in your favorite series. My students share that same excitement and joy of waiting for and then finally devouring the newest books in their favorite series. My students are inquisitive, voracious readers who are craving to discover the newest adventures in their favorite book series.

My students are book-loving, avid readers, and enthusiastic learners.

Students at my school are inquisitive, compassionate, and creative. As English language learners, books are so important to my students and are truly valued.

My Project

I can give my kids a special place to sit—with cozy chairs that provide flexible classroom seating wherever they need it!

The chairs feature cushioned back supports that adjust to the perfect position…simply lift the backs of the seats to a comfortable height, then just lay them flat for convenient storage!

The removable microfiber covers are machine-washable too.

Flexible seating allows students to take charge of their learning and make the choices that work best for them. During independent work times they choose a location in the classroom that works for them. Currently my students are choosing to work in a variety of locations in our room such as: at different tables, sitting under tables with clip boards, or sitting or laying on the floor with a clip board. Making sure students are comfortable is an essential component in motivating them. I have noticed amazing differences in my students when they are given a choice in their seating. They almost always make good choices about where they sit, are more engaged, and get more work completed than when they are just sitting at their desk.
