My Students

My classroom is filled with kind, hard-working second graders who always strive to do their best. My students come primarily from low-income households. Oftentimes, several families live under the same roof, due to the high cost of living. The majority of my students are English language learners, whose parents have limited resources at home to help them succeed in school. I do my best to provide a safe, comfortable environment where my students can flourish and thrive.

My students are bright, creative, and enthusiastic learners who inspire me to be a better human being.

Although they face many hardships at home, they come to school with positive attitudes, eager to learn new concepts, and always willing to help each other. Their resiliency amazes me, and I can't wait to see the positive things they will do in their lives!

My Project

Flexible seating gives students the opportunity to make choices that directly impact their learning. When children have a say in their learning, it makes them feel like they are responsible for their learning, which gives them a level of independence that allows them to grow academically and socially. Flexible seating is a way to incorporate personalized learning into our classroom. Children have different learning modalities, and flexible seating gives them the option to find what works best for them.

When children are given seating options, they feel like they have a say in their learning.

The floor seats that I chose will help my students by giving them new seating options to make more effective learning choices. Their backs are adjustable, so that students can chose the level of support that they need. They're also lightweight and easy to store.

My students currently use bean bags and pillows that I've purchased in order to transition into offering flexible seating options, and I have already noticed a change in their level of engagement. Having additional options will make a big impact on their learning.
