My Students

My students come from a variety of socioeconomic, ethnic, religious, and academic backgrounds and come together to learn to be internationally minded. They have large aspirations and it is my goal to help start them out on the best path possible for their future.

My students come to school excited to learn and very inquisitive, but we lack vital resources.

I have 50 students throughout the day for math and science instruction. They love learning through a variety of ways and I wish to provide them with as many opportunities as possible.

My Project

Feeling comfortable in an environment I choose always makes me more productive. Whether my options may be a comfortable chair, a couch, or even sprawled out on the floor, having a choice helps to add both accountability and a sense of freedom within the classroom.

My students deserve an opportunity to complete work in an environment that they find comfortable and will help them focus.

Students will have many options other than just a hard chair to work in, and a space that lends itself to individual work, partner work, or group work. Adding options such as bean bag chairs and a table that has a dry erase top will present them with a further variety of choices.

Providing my students with flexible seating will help them to understand that learning can take place in many ways and various places. Learning does not have to be uncomfortable and orderly - in fact, the best lessons are not.
