My Students

This is my first year teaching first grade, and I absolutely love it so far! I have been amazed by how much these little people have taught me. They are so excited and eager to learn! Having taught third and fourth grade, it has been really eye opening and fun to see where it all starts. First graders are truly like little sponges. Their enthusiasm for learning has helped me become even more enthusiastic about teaching. I want only the best for them.

My students are energetic, curious, eager to please, motivated, kind, and sweet.

They come from a variety of backgrounds and have many different needs. As their teacher, it is important that I make sure they have what they need to be successful and advocate for them in any way that I can.

My Project

I have several students that prefer to not sit in traditional chairs. They are more comfortable and can work and focus best in flexible seating. The metal chairs in my classroom also take up a lot of space around my small group table and are heavy for my little students. Having these wobble chairs will allow us to have more space to work and learn. Students will also feel comfortable and will be able to get some much needed "wiggles out" safely.

Working with small groups is vital in first grade.

I am able to better meet students' needs, whether that means giving a group of students more support or challenging students that have already mastered the skill. I pull reading, writing, and math groups so our small group table is used very often. These flexible seating options will make a world of difference for my students!
