My Students

I teach in a low-income school where students are ready to learn about what the world has to offer them. They want to feel loved, valued and want their education to be meaningful.

I am blessed with a group of students who are eager to learn and discover their world.

The students are hungry to learn about their world, collaborate, and reach their potential. Students spend this year learning the foundation of knowledge and skills they will need as they move forward in their education. They will participate in group work where they will collaborate and learn from one another. Fifth graders are excited to explore their world. This year, they will truly begin to learn about themselves and their world and I want to be able to provide them with enough resources. It is my ultimate goal to do all I can to inspire and ignite their learning.

My Project

Learning does not always take place at a student desk. In my classroom, it takes place on the floor or on bean bags. Unfortunately, I only have 3 of these and often all students want to sit on them. The new ball chairs will provide students with different options that are often more comfortable and inviting. Flexible seating gives students the opportunity to move and change seating which helps them increase their attention and makes collaborative work more possible.

Our classroom needs to reflect upon the real world.

A classroom does not need to be stuffy and uncomfortable. It should be inviting and encourage students to learn. I want my classroom to support the needs of all my students. The seating that I am requesting will allow students to move around in an overcrowded classroom with flexibility. The ball chairs will help my students that need movement move while they remain seated.
