My Students

My school is an inner city school district where my students are faced with several challenges within their community. Although my students face many obstacles, they do not let the challenges that they face on a daily basis hold them back from learning.

My kindergarten students are caring individuals, who are eager learners and strive to achieve success.

Flexible seating allows students to wobble, bounce, or rock, which increases blood flow to the brain. In turn, this helps keep the young minds more alert and focused.

My Project

Have you ever tried to sit in a hard chair for a long period of time and focus on a given task? By providing access to wobble stools, my kindergarten students will have the opportunity to choose comfort and movement, which will enhance their learning and ability to focus instead of sitting in a hard chair all day long.

Flexible seating allows students the opportunity to wobble, stand or bounce, which keeps young minds more alert and focused by increasing blood flow to the brain.

Educators often focus on the different learning styles of their students. It is equally important to understand their students unique comfort levels; which will help them stay focused and engaged to optimize learning.
