My Students

Our campus is one of more than 80 elementary schools in the Austin Independent School District and serves roughly 1,000 students in Kindergarten through 5th grade. My class is a diverse group of students, each with their own strengths and interests. They are inquisitive learners with lots of energy.

I strive to provide my students with an education that best fits their needs to become lifelong learners.

Just as students have different strengths and interests, they also have different learning styles.

My Project

My classroom is in the process of transforming into a flexible seating learning environment for my flexible learners. I have seen many benefits from research and other teacher testimonies. Moving away from the traditional classroom setup gives my students more ownership and choice in their learning.

Current studies show that implementing flexible seating has empowered students, increased student engagement and has helped prepare students for the real world.

Think about your workday. Are you restrained to a stationary chair? Or do you work and learn better when when are comfortable have have the freedom to move around?

Therefore, with flexible seating, such as a large rug and wobble cushions, my goal is to create a more comfortable work space for my students to learn and explore. In addition, students will no longer have their desks to store supplies in, so this cubby shelf will help organize there books and materials.
