My Students

My students live in a neighborhood that's predominately Hispanic, and 89% of the students who attend the school are from low-income families. While parents try their best to be involved in their student's learning, it can be hard and most of the time, students do not get the help they need at home. This is where I step in and try my best to provide everything I can in my classroom for my students.

My students come from a variety of backgrounds, but the one thing in common they each have is their love for learning!

It has been fascinating to see how much students get comfortable with their Spanish and to hear non-native speaking students engaged in a Spanish conversation. It is truly beautiful to hear!

My Project

Over the years, our classroom has transformed into a flexible seating environment. My students have enjoyed our mini flexible seating portion in our library and writing area, but we need more variety to engage every student through movement. Having more variety will also help create a welcoming environment where students can have the opportunity to take leadership of their learning by picking the correct learning spot.

Having a full flexible seating classroom will also help encourage students to continue learning with comfortable seating options.

A wobble stool and stacking stools are great options that allow students to have room to move their legs. A saucer chair is a great option for students who want a comfortable seat to rest their bodies while learning. The materials from this project is one step closer to help complete our flexible seating in first grade to allow every student have a choice.
