My Students

I have the privilege of looping up to 3rd grade with my students this year! They are thoughtful, caring, and excited about learning. They crave knowledge and are so ready to start taking ownership of their learning.

We are a family and they inspire me to be a better teacher for them every day.

The majority of my students are English language learners and live in areas of poverty. They aren't provided with extra resources that other children are. Most of their neighborhoods are not the safe places they should be.

My Project

Flexible seating allows students to take charge of their learning and make the choices that work best for them. Currently my students are stuck sitting at very uncomfortable desks that are not conducive to the learning environment we want. Making sure students are comfortable is an essential component in motivating them. When students are given choices, they are more engaged and successful.

My students are very excited to show how responsible they are with the new seating options.

The products that I have selected will help my students by giving them additional seating options to make more effective learning choices. The wobble stool will allow some movement which will help students with ADHD. The comfy floor seats and the beanbag chair will allow for additional comfortable floor seating options. They are lightweight and can be easily used in many areas of the classroom. The desks and chairs will allow students to work either independently or in a group depending on what their needs.

I know this will have a positive impact on my students work and motivation. I hope that the new options will help us grow even closer as a family!
