My Students

My first graders are my kids, not just my students. We become a family throughout the year. They face many challenges outside of our classroom walls on an everyday basis. Their young lives are filled with stress and uncertainty, but school is always there. I strive to make our classroom space a place where they feel safe, respected, and able to achieve their dreams.

"Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world" -Nelson Mandela.

I am a teacher at a Title I school in a low socioeconomic area. Our school just became the first elementary Community School in the state of Florida. This means that our school not only educates our students but is also able to start meeting their medical and personal needs with the help of the Brevard Health Alliance and other local businesses.

My students deserve all there is to give. Every one of my students comes to school eager to learn and better themselves. I believe whole-heartedly in every one of my kids and their successes, but I lack the resources for my classroom.

My Project

We know that not all students learn the same way. So why do we expect them to sit the same way?

My students need the resources necessary to feel some choice or control over their environment.

Students will be encouraged to find their best spot to be productive and focused. Flexible seating allows students to have more ownership of their learning.

Stability cushions, exercise balls, stools, and lap desks give students options that provide comfort and therefore, provide higher student engagement and productivity.

My integration of flexible seating will be used during small group and independent work time. I strongly believe that this will spark a change in their commitment to learning and positive behavior.
