My Students

Welcome! We are so glad you're here! Our classroom is one lively place full of play, literacy, math, science, music, art, and lots of exploration. Thanks for stopping by.

My kindergarten students are a lively bunch who love to learn and play.

These kids mean the world to me and I want them to be successful and proud of themselves. We are developing a sense of self for each child through their play, social skills, partner learning, one on one conferencing, getting parents involved, and making sure they are aware of the world around them.

My Project

By providing my classroom with these special HUG chairs, I feel it will ensure success among my students. I have read studies about incorporating flexible seating in the classroom to improve on focus and stamina while learning. My students will be able to focus while bouncing or wiggling in many different types of chairs, allowing movement, without being confined to a regular chair, or causing a disruption in the class by constantly hopping up and down out of their regular chair.

By donating to my project, you will allow my students to feel successful in their classroom.I am confident that the focus of my students will improve, which will allow for a successful year for them, giving them the self confidence they need to be successful further down their educational road.

These students need to be given a chance to be as successful as they can be, achieving the best for their future.
