My Students

Our school is one campus with grades Pre-K through seniors, all on one campus. Most grades have fewer than 30 students. We live in a very rural area.

My classes consist of seventh through twelfth grades in English, debate, business, and technology classes, and my students who are primarily from low socioeconomic backgrounds.

These students are often in eight classes a day while still active in extracurricular activities and while also helping their families through second jobs, chores, or babysitting younger siblings while the parents work multiple jobs.

My Project

I want to have a classroom that is warm, inviting, and give students options, but at the high school level that can be a challenge as classrooms are not large and you want furniture that will survive high school students. This year has taught us to also limit fabric seating options and look for more hard surfaces.

This seating gives students the option of sitting on the floor, at normal heights, or at a counter height level so that they can feel more comfortable while learning.

Flexible or alternative seating can quickly change a classroom from a sterile learning environment to a warm and welcoming place where students look forward to coming each day. This is the goal of this project - to create a warm environment that also gives students some ownership of their seating choices.
