My Students

I teach 2nd grade at a Title I school in California. This year my classroom is full of fun-loving students who are eager to learn. They love working in small groups and are driven by technology. Anytime I am able to incorporate technology into a lesson, they are immediately more engaged. The school I teach at is a STEAM school, so my students have many opportunities to show their creativity through engineering which they love. It excites me to see them get excited about their learning, so I look for as many ways as possible to include small groups, technology and STEM into everything we do!

My Project

One thing that I have learned through my teaching experience is that every child is different. All of our students come to us with unique needs, and if those needs are met it can help them succeed in the classroom. I have been working very hard over the past three years to incorporate flexible seating options in my classroom. These options give students flexibility within the classroom to sit and work in a space that fits their needs and helps lead to their success. Some of the options I already have in my classroom include stability balls and wobble seats for my active students. I have seen these chairs in multiple rooms at my school site, and students seem to love them as a flexible seating option. I plan to use them daily during my small group time as an option for students who are reading and working on the carpet.
