My Students

My students come from diverse backgrounds. They love being able to do their learning in the best way they can. The students that I work with are all energetic and ready to learn. However as humans including adults, after sitting in the same area we get antsy and fidgety. My students do love being able to take pride in their best work they can create. I would like to be able to provide a flexible work environment for the students in my classroom.

My Project

My students always come to school ready to learn! However just like adults, after sitting all day in the same exact chair they get a little restless and fidgety. The flexible seating will provide comfort for my students and for their success in the classroom. There have been studies that show that students can learn better when they are comfortable and actively engaged.

This project will provide access for my student to have success in the classroom with their learning.

The classroom should be as comfortable to my students. This is another place they spend a lot at just like their home. A lot of my students find school to be a safe place and that is what I hope to help with this project.
