My Students

My students are spontaneous, energetic, bubbly, and certainly have the love for learning! Many of my students are in the midst of overcoming poverty and trying to focus on the day in front of them. Students walk in the doors of my classroom eager to greet me and ready to explore what I have in store for them! It is my ultimate goal to do all I can to inspire and ignite their learning. I hope to use new technology in our classroom for different math and reading small-group tasks! By doing this, I hope to lead students toward academic excellence!

My Project

I currently have flexible seating in my classroom! This means I have a variety of seating options. Options offer different groupings, heights, visual locations, and comfort (less or more support).

Flexible seating in my classroom has set-up a profound learning environment.

However, these options often need replaced or repaired. I am requesting new stools for my guided reading groups. My old stools were ruined over the course of the last few years due to constant use and poor material. I am also requesting new lap stools for floor work. We often do activities and students prefer to have floor space. The lap seats would help with the organization of these activities.
