My Students

I am blessed to spend everyday with very energetic first graders. Their love of life and learning is contagious! They make coming to work fun.

My first graders are a very active group of six and seven year olds who learn best in an environment that is structured so that they feel valued and have a sense of control.

They come from various socioeconomic backgrounds and experiences, and are a group who works well together. They are becoming awesome readers, writers, and mathematicians.

My Project

I moved to a flexible seating classroom set up 3 years ago, and I cannot imagine going back to the traditional classroom set up! I love flexible seating! I have wobble stools, tall stools, crate seats, rocking chairs, and yoga balls along with various table/desk options. The one style of seating that I am lacking is floor cushions. My first graders love to sit on the floor right next to a buddy and read or complete assignments. The floor cushions that I am requesting will enable them to do this more comfortably.
