My Students

Our students are a diverse group of motivated, hard-working and passionate learners. Living in an urban neighborhood in Northwest Washington, DC, some of our students find themselves below grade level or struggling to learn English. However, we provide all the resources and support to help these students reach grade level expectations by the end of each school year, by teaching them to work through the curriculum at their own pace. At our school, we emphasize that education is journey and not a competition. Through personal devices for all students grades 3-8; free breakfast, lunch and snack every day; and an extended school day so there is time for mentorship and intervention, our students are equipped with the power to overcome any challenges and reach any and all of their personal goals.

My Project

My students need a comfortable and flexible seating while reading. Our classroom works in small group rotations. When it is not time for students to meet with a teacher, they are independently working on another activity. When it comes time to escape every day life and get engrossed in a book, my students need a comfortable spot to enjoy the book.

In addition, during our guided reading lessons, students often times wobble in our current stools, causing them to fall or the stools to break.

Our flexible seating stools will allow students to maintain focus while fidgeting, as well as stay safe. Our students love to get lost in a book and what better way to do that while staying comfortable!
