My Students

My students are part of a diverse community in South San Jose. Everyday my students practice the five core values on which their education is being built: Respect, Responsibility, Persistence, Empathy, and Advocacy.

They are eager and excited to engage with academic materials, build friendships and develop the skills necessary to make a difference in their community and the world.

They are young advocates.

They are constantly working hard to engage with new texts, learn about new topics, and delve into any book they can.

My Project

Isn't it nice to be able to sit comfortably as you enjoy a great book? For some kids, comfortably means they can move around, wriggle, and wobble. These stools will give my students who need an extra outlet for their energy the ability to move around as they work to focus on their reading and work in class. It is a fun, alternative way to sit at their desks in school.

I can't wait to see my students be able to focus longer on their books because they can read and be energetic at the same time.

I hope to be able to have an alternative seating option for my students this year!
