My Students

Our district is one of the most diverse in the nation. Our students come from a variety of cultural and religious backgrounds, speak multiple languages and perform on a wide range of academic abilities. It is amazing to educate children who are so different from one another. They have some of the most fun and vibrant personalities and I am excited everyday I am able to work with them. I have never met more hardworking students!

With all of the demands we put on our young students, they deserve a chance to learn through hands-on activities, in a fun and engaging environment.

We try our best as a school and community to present our students with creative ways to express their knowledge. I am so excited to bring new opportunities to my students. I can't wait to inspire them to become more motivated learners and kinder citizens.

My Project

My students need alternative seating options that will allow them to move while they work at their desks, tables, on the rug, and that are easy to transport to their other classes. They have diverse needs, some of them unable to keep their bodies still long enough to complete an assignment. My students need an outlet for their energy and kore wobble seats will allow them to move while staying focused on a task. These stools will be used while the students are working at their desks in small groups and during independent work time. They will also be able to carry them easily to other classes such as speech, resource, and our tiered intervention groups. The bouncy bands will fit easily on their chairs and all students will be able to benefit from moving their feet back and forth.

I want all students to succeed in my classroom, and they need these chairs, cushions, and bouncy bands to be able to work comfortably and release extra energy.

I have been working hard to make our classroom more usable for our students and their needs. I have a handful of students who require more movement than other students throughout the day. They get funny looks or annoyed classmates often ask to move because they are bouncing around and encroaching on their work space. It is often disruptive for them to be walking around the room, so I know these stools, cushions, and chair bands will make all the difference for them. Please help make our classroom a workable and inclusive place for all of our diverse students.
