My students are an energetic bunch who love to learn. Most of my students come from a low socioeconomic background, and many from homes where English is a second language. The school where I teach is a Title I school. While my students may face a lot of challenges, they love to succeed. They enjoy seeing themselves accomplish different tasks such as reading a text that is difficult or finishing a writing project. They love to explore and learn new things.
While they may face many challenges outside of school, inside of school they show excitement and a passion for learning.
As a teacher, I want to be able to provide the tools for my students to be successful and enjoy learning.
My students enjoy coming to school. They are always engaged in their learning. Every student learns in a different way and I want to create an environment where all students feel comfortable to learn.
My students need space in the classroom where they can choose seating that is comfortable for them to learn best.
We need a variety of items that will allow students to be comfortable in their learning environment. We need wobble stools so students who like to fidget have a chair to do so. We need cushions to sit on so students who enjoy sitting on the floor have a comfortable place to do so. We also need some other types of seating, including a cuddle chair and balance balls, so students have a choice in where they would like to sit. I want students to have flexibility in where they are going to work so they can be comfortable. When students are comfortable they are more open to learning and being engage.
