My Students

I have not met my students for this up coming school year, but I know they will all be very special and unique in their own way! We have all different types of learners at Cool Spring with lots of different needs. What I love most about CSE first graders is their love for learning and for school. Each year my students bring new challenges, but they also bring joy. Students in first grade learn how to read, write and solve complex math story problems. It’s a year of huge growth for all!

My Project

Over the last eight years I have incorporated flexible seating into my classroom. Students have the option to sit on a stability ball or a wobble cushion. I would like to offer them a third option; a wobble seat. I’ve seen them used in another teacher’s class and they are awesome! Flexible seating allows my students to move and “wobble” while learning. It helps them exert their energy while putting their focus on learning! Students love to move and this allows them to move and learn at the same time. After having flexible seating in the classroom I would never go back to tradition chairs!
