My Students

Our students are creative and energetic. They try to work hard in school but they love to move, to play, and to learn!

My students are excited about learning.

They come to school with smiles on their faces and an eagerness to learn. Many of them come from a lower, socio-economic background and do not have access to computers or Internet at home. More than half of the students qualify for free or reduced price meal plans. It is important that my students gain exposure and knowledge to a vast amount of possibilities while at our school to help them see the opportunities so they can succeed in the future.

My Project

Hard plastic chairs aren’t comfortable for 7 hours a day. I want to provide students with a variety of seating choices so they have the option to choose what works best for them as an individual student. My students would love Learniture Active Learning Stools or more commonly known as Wobble Chairs.

By having alternative seating students are free to make a choice of which seating arrangement is best for their learning.

Having the flexibility to move around and change seating options while working is important. By giving them more choices it will empower them to make better choices and become more successful in the classroom.

You will help the learning environment by giving students more choice.
