My Students

I teach at a title 1 school in Northern California. Majority of our students receive free or reduced lunch and more. We have many second language learner students, where over half my class are ELL students. This will be my first year at this school, but 3rd year in the school district. Students are very fortunate to have one to one devices, which allows them to compliment their learning and prepare them for a high tech world once they become adults. For some of these students, this is the first time they work with technology. I work really hard to build relationships with both students and their parents and guide students to become life long learners.

My Project

Flexible seating allows students to take charge of their learning and make the choices that work best for them. During independent work times they choose a location in the classroom that works for them. Currently my students are choosing to work in a variety of locations in our room such as: at different tables, sitting under tables with clip boards, or sitting or laying on carpet with a whiteboard. Making sure students are comfortable is an essential component in motivating them. I have noticed amazing differences in my students when they are given a choice in their seating. They almost always make good choices about where they sit, are more engaged, and get more work completed than when they are just sitting at their desk.The products that I have selected will help my students by giving them additional seating options to make more effective learning choices. The wobble stools are adjustable and will allow students to sit at desk/higher tables but will still allow some movement. These will be extremely beneficial for some students that just need to get the wiggles out. They can also be used as an alternative chair if needed! The comfy floor seats will allow for additional comfortable floor seating options. They are lightweight and can be easily used in many areas of the classroom.
