My Students

"Every student can learn, just not on the same day, or in the same way." - George Evans

I work in a low-income school district in Washington state where 100% of my students receive free meals at school.

My students are migrant learners who live on a Reservation. They are eager to learn despite the odds they have against them in their lives. At our school, we do everything we can to help them be college and career ready. This includes being people who are hard workers and excited to learn.

My Project

These student-centered seating options will help my first graders thrive in our classroom. My students use flexible seating in our room so they have opportunities for movement. The stability ball chair will allow students to select that seat or me to have a student move to that seat to promote engagement and hard work.

Stability balls improve posture, engage muscles and parts of the brain required to maintain balance, and enhance focus on school work.

Instead of being confined to a desk all day, they are given the choice to work on the floor, at a wobble stool, on a balance ball etc. One big complaint is that they need more options, other than a standard desk or chair. These new seating options will allow them to be active in the area they spend most of their day, the classroom. These seating options will show them that they can move WHILE they work. Too many Americans spend too much of their day sitting down and still. This has lead to high obesity rates and poor posture. By having alternative seating methods, students will learn great skills that will carry over for the rest of their lives. Thank you for making this dream a reality!
