My Students

I am Very excited to start flexible seating with my group of kids! I’ve alway had a group of high energy, motivated and eager to learn students! I have many students that have a very hard time sitting in regular classroom seats during the long school day. I have found many ways to help them out but this type of seating is something I would love to get started for them. They are great kids and deserve to learn in their own way!

My Project

I am a Kindergarten teacher looking to start a whole new journey with my kiddos! Flexible seating is something I have wanted to try for a long time and I am very excited to start it up with your help! Kids need a little freedom in their learning and this is the way to do it! With flexible seating they are able to choose the best way to learn for their needs! I am very excited to see how this will change my classroom environment and be able to watch the little ones grow and prosper in their own way!
