My Students

Help my students succeed with flexible seating and standing desks. I am blessed enough to teacher pre-k through 6th grade special education in a small community. I have many students enter my classroom door throughout the day. Some students do not succeed as well at a tradition tables, desks, or chairs. By increasing the options in my classroom I am helping them succeed. My classroom aides and create a positive and welcoming environment for all students. This will help them even more!

My Project

Flexible seating allows students to take charge of their learning and make the choices that work best for them. My students will have the option to sit at a traditional table or desk with the zuma rocking chairs or they will have the option to use the standing desks to complete their work. I teach students in small groups and this this gives my students more of a variety to enhance their learning! There are many times students will come into my room for a quiet environment to complete their work. The flexible seating gives them more options. They almost always make good choices about where they sit, are more engaged, and get more work completed than when they are just sitting at their desk. The products that I have selected will help my students by giving them additional seating options to make more effective learning choices.
