My Students

Middle School students are a unique breed. In 7th grade, students are at an age where they either will love or hate learning. 7th grade students are also going through major life transitions...they are developing their own personalities, learning who they are, and every student is different. These students want to be treated with respect and want to feel like they are grown-up, but at the same time they are still kids and are longing for a sense of belonging. My students come from all walks of life and are at all academic levels. They are growing and changing daily, and need my support in finding who they truly are, as well as their love for learning.

My Project

We all know that math is the most dreaded subject. I do what I can to make it more exciting for our students but students learn better when they are in a comfortable environment. This flexible seating project will allow students to choose seating, whether it is stools, exercise balls, or wobble chairs, that best fit their learning style. Not only does flexible seating allow them the option to choose a seat but it also allows them to burn excess energy and increases motivation and engagement.

When being allowed the opportunity to choose their own seat, students take ownership of their learning and increase their productivity.

The comfortable stools will allow students to be more engaged and on task. As well as being less disruptive. The variety of stools selected will give students the will give students different options in the classroom. Flexible seating in the classroom will give student freedom to become more successful learners.
