My Students

The students at my school are all eager to learn and love to come to school every day. I will either be teaching Kindergarten or 3rd grade next year, and I can't wait to meet my new students! My classes in the past have been wonderful, and I know this will hold true for the coming year as well.

I am looking forward to a new school year with a great group of children and would love for my classroom to be an engaging place for them all.

My Project

Flexible seating bouncy balls will be used throughout the day to increase student focus and give them an alternative option to a chair at their table. It is important to me that my students all have a seating option that fits their needs as a learner, and that they can choose a smart seat to help them achieve success. I want my classroom to be a place where all students feel successful and comfortable while learning new things. Giving them choices such as their seating will help me achieve this goal. Fidget bands will be another resource for students to use at their tables to increase focus. Having a large amount of these is important to me so every student in my classroom has the opportunity to use some type of flexible seating/fidget band at all times.

By donating to our project, you will not only help to improve and increase student attention and focus, you will ultimately help to increase their academic achievement.
