I am an elementary school teacher who has enjoyed working with 5th grade students for 15 years at Norwood School. Norwood is based in an incredibly loving, supportive, and working-class community. It has been my experience that the students who attend our school are inquisitive, hard working, and eager to learn.
It is my goal to continually provide my students with novel and challenging experiences to enhance their learning.
I consider myself extremely fortunate to be a teacher in this wonderful community and have the privilege to work with such an amazing group of students.
In a world, of technology and video games, I am constantly trying to find ways to regain my students' attention. I strongly believe that offering students a flex seating option will not only help me regain their attention, but allow them to take ownership of their learning experience by including them in the process.
It’s simply not just about having another option of seating, it’s about showing my students that I am invested in helping create an environment that is conducive to absorbing new information.
Flexible seating will create a classroom community where we can all grow and learn together.
