My Students

My kindergarten Spanish Immersion students are so amazing! This year, I have 23 but normally 25 and life is BUSY in kinder-land, especially in a 2nd language! They are all English speakers who are brand new to Spanish. However, by the end of their very first school year (9 months), they're reading, writing, and speaking in Spanish! Most years we have students that are also native speakers of other languages (recently Chinese, Japanese, Hindi and Punjabi to name a few!), so those students are leaving kindergarten trilingual! Immersion is an incredible gift that these children are able to undertake, giving them a broader world-view, more empathy, and cognitive benefits so that they will be empowered to go off and change the world!

My Project

Our students work so hard every day! They deserve a comfortable spot to make that work and learning happen. This project, if funded, will provide my students this year, and for years to come, with seating options that will support their moving bodies and help channel their thinking to maximize learning. Research has shown that students who are not confined to one seat or desk and are encouraged to move and wiggle, will do better academically as well as socially. The seating choices will create an inviting, homey environment so that students grow to love the classroom space and enjoy being there each and every day.
