My Students

My classroom is a place where students learn and grow from each other. We strive to operate in a positive environment by building our classmates up so they can focus on becoming their best selves and advancing academically. We work on fostering a growth mindset and strive to learn from our mistakes. We are inquisitive, adventurous, and enjoy new challenges. We are blossoming as readers, scientists, mathematicians, writers, and historians.

We are very lucky to be part of a strong, caring, and supportive learning community.

One of the things we love most about our school is some of the students who strengthen our classrooms with their diverse learning needs. In our classroom, we have students with a wide range of social, emotional, and academic abilities. All students strengthen our classroom and school by creating empathetic, accepting, and caring peers. I love my students, their families, my colleagues, and my school because we are always there for each other.

My Project

Over the past year, I have made strides to make the classroom feel more like home with comfortable flexible seating options. For the upcoming school year, I am taking it one step further and eliminating the majority of desks and tables in my classroom. This project will give students a comfortable place to do their work as well as lap desks to make doing the work easy. The rugs will help separate areas in the classroom and will also serve as places for kids to spread out on cushions and pillows on the floor.

I have seen, first hand, the benefits of flexible seating in the classroom.

Kids feel more comfortable and are thereby more motivated to do their best work.
