My Students

We are a small, unique K-12 school in rural southern Oregon.

As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school, my students are faced with numerous challenges in and out of the classroom.

Despite facing many challenges, our students come to school everyday excited to learn, and happy to be at school. They always have the willingness to try new things and overcome their daily struggles to become well-rounded, active learners. Our students need multiple seating choices so they can be active learners.

My Project

One of my student's favorite parts of the day is time in text, where they can sit any where in the room and just read. I want to give my students comfortable, yet supportive places to sit in our room. I want the students to be able to sit where they feel they can learn the best, and complete their work efficiently.

My students would love bean bag chairs, stability balls, and wobble stools when reading during time in text, working on math problems, social studies Cornell notes, or AVID one-pagers.

I want to provide my students with a not only a safe learning environment, but one where they can have comfortable seating choices.
