My Students

I teach a classroom full of bright, caring, and diverse 4th and 5th graders. My students love to learn and love to feel successful! Being in a self-contained classroom means that we have students with various different needs as well as learning styles. Despite my students having difficulties in learning, they never give up and always have a smile on their face.

Creating flexible, accessible, and calming environments for my students is what will allow them to continue to become successful learners.

My school is in District 1 in Manhattan, New York. We are a Title 1 school, which serves many low-income families. We are a diverse community that embraces and celebrates everyone's differences.

My Project

My students need these flexible seating options to allow them to stay focused throughout the school day. Having these alternatives will help my students work independently and remain attentive during lessons. In addition, my students will become more independent by choosing seats in the classroom where they feel most successful.

Students will have a chance to get their wiggles out while they learn and become more engaged when given a choice of where they can work.

Whether it's a resistance band to bounce their legs on, a floor chair to help them stay seated on the rug, or the wobble chairs and cushions to allow movement while seated, these options will support my students in meeting their academic goals.
