My Students

My students have a love for learning and make my job so much fun. We love to be active in our learning every day. My classroom is full of 16 lovable students who jump at the urge to help their teacher!

With the help of this grant, I would be one step closer to helping my students succeed in my classroom.

The ability to have flexible seating in the classroom gives my students options to be comfortable while they still learn.

My Project

My students would love to get out of their seats and learn anywhere in the classroom. They love to sit on the floor and write. I would love to be able to give the cushions or pillows to lay on and be comfortable while learning. We have a lot of students that are ADHD and would love to have the bands and balls for them to sit on so that they can still learn.

We love learning and moving around the room!

I am also on the go and sitting on the ground with the students. Having the flexible seating will improve their attitudes and hopefully grades!
