My Students

Flexible Seating Creates Focused Learners!

My students need a variety of seating options in order to create a glamorous atmosphere that will support their myriad needs.

I have a classroom of 16 myriad learners. My students show a great amount of readiness to learn. They are particularly interested in becoming high achievers and role models. Their excitement for learning is exhibited daily, as is their support for their peers.

We are in a mostly low-income/ high-poverty title one school district, with many of my students facing several hardships both in and out of the classroom. We overexert to make school a delightful experience where all students feel safe and engaged. As their teacher, I aim to foster their novelty and passion for learning.

Flexible seating allows students to take charge of their learning and make the choices that work best for them.

My Project

Flexible seating allows students to take charge of their learning and make the choices that work best for them. During independent work times they choose a location in the classroom that works for them. Currently my students are choosing to work in a variety of locations in our room such as: at different tables, sitting under tables with clip boards, or sitting or lying on the floor with a clip board. Making sure students are comfortable is a vital component to student motivation. I have noticed astounding differences in my students when they are given a preference in their seating. They almost always make good choices about where they sit, are more engaged, and get more work completed than when they are just sitting at their desk.
