My Students

Today's young minds need hands-on activities to encourage the development of critical 21st-century skills such as collaboration, communication, creativity, critical thinking, and problem solving. A major challenge is finding materials to capture the attention of young minds to make this a reality.

Our Elementary School is one of twenty-nine elementary schools in our School District.

It is an early-start, traditional school serving approximately 661 students in kindergarten through fifth grade. Our student population of approximately 69.3% Hispanic/Latino, 11.5% African American, 9.4% White, 4.1% Filipino, 3.2% Asian, and 2.5% other. Our Elementary School proudly earned the California Department of Education’s 2013 Title I Academic Achievement Award and is a California Distinguished School. This prestigious honor is a reflection of the school’s system of support for all students at all learning levels. Innovative intervention strategies and differentiated instruction greatly impacted school wide student performance to meet state and federal standards of excellence

My Project

I would like my students to feel empowered by having some degree of choice and control over their environment. Flexible seating, like the floor laptop tables, and floor cushions, allow students to choose where they work and with whom. It also allows them to change their locations and positions as needed.

Flexible seating encourages students to find their best spot to stay calm, focused and productive.

The floor laptop tables and floor cushions will allow for impromptu seating flexibility in the classroom. This will allow students to move about the classroom while still maintaining the use of their laptops and classroom supplies while on the floorspace.
