My Students

Many of my students come from single parent families and households with a very limited income and few resources. Our small school is located in a rural community where we are limited with resources as well. A large percentage of our students receive free and/or reduced lunches.

My students are motivated to learn and work hard to reach their goals!

My students are amazing with tons of potential to grow! I want to spark their creativity and interest in becoming lifelong learners so they may begin to view problems and solutions in a new way. I want these students to believe they are capable of doing and being anything they imagine!

My Project

I started using flexible seating options just last year to explore how students prefer to work. I discovered many students would rather stand at a tall table or sit on the floor to complete their tasks. Not all students learn best seated at a traditional desk just like not all students learn best when seeing or hearing instructions rather than completing a task with their hands. These floor chairs would offer my students a comfortable alternative in which to sit while learning. My students’ quality of work and creativity will soar if they are comfortable and focused on discovering new ways of looking at issues and problems.
