My Students

My students are little beach bums, living so close to the Atlantic Ocean. We are found in a small town in Southern New Jersey. My fifth grade students are curious about the environment and protecting our beaches. Sandy came through our area and damaged quite a bit of it. My students saw first hand how precious life is, and not just their own. They know the importance of preservation and how to treat their home, Earth. Our school is a close-knit family, we work together to create an environment that is fun and nurturing. Our PTA helps provide many activities for our students that are sure to fill them with wonder. I can honestly say I love going to work in the morning. I never know what the day will bring, but I know I will be amazed!

My Project

I have an incredibly creative classroom. We have cafe height tables, a fire pit, and a living room area. I know that the addition of these tables and benches will add the flexible seating experience.

Flexible seating allows them to wobble, rock, bounce, lean or stand, which increases oxygen flow to the brain, blood flow, and core strength.

By adding these neat tables, that transform into benches, I can create an additional area for learning where students can engage in the best way possible. I am sure my students will enjoy sitting (or kneeling) at these tables while they tackle their math and science activities.
