My Students

I have a wonderful diverse group of students who are very active! Each individual student learns in a different individualized way. In our classroom community we have twenty-one brilliant students, and of those students six are learning English as a second language, four have Special Needs, and four receive services for Speech and Language.

Every individual in my class is capable of success given the support and tools to reach their goals!

Every student has a different personality they bring to our classroom community. The drive to learn and succeed is undeniable and I cannot wait to see where this year brings us!

My Project

Flexible seating will help my students stay engaged and focused on the rigorous fourth grade curriculum we have in the state of Connecticut. Fourth grade students are active and want to move throughout the day. Providing them with flexible seating allows them to move about while staying focused on the assigned task.

My students come from low income homes.

We are a Title I school where many of the students do not have access to the resources that allow for a comfortable learning environment. Providing flexible seating in the classroom gives students a choice in what kind of learning space works best for them, which will allow them to work collaboratively, communicate, and engage in critical thinking. I have special needs students who will benefit from seating options that stimulate the sense of touch, resulting in greater focus for productive thinking. In my project I am asking for wobble stools, wobble cushions, ball chairs, floor seats, inflatable chairs, and bouncy bands. Providing this flexible seating will allow students to move safely without distracting others or themselves.

Teaching has always been a passion of mine and I want to provide the best possible tools for my students to be successful. This opportunity will not only help my students this year, but in years to come as well. Help me help them!
