My Students

Overall, my students are a respectful bunch who are well-mannered, always trying their best, and won't give up. Each student shines brightly and has a special place in my heart. My students have a wide range of unique abilities.

I have an eager bunch of second grade Superstars this year that are thirsty for more knowledge.

They enjoy collaborating with one another on what they know on assignments. Look out because are going to be very successful and will make a huge difference in our future!

My Project

Students in my class will learn in such a way that they will not be forced to sit in desks and chairs in rows facing the teacher all day long. I would like to have small tables in my room that will allow them to collaborate, motivate and engage my students.

I want create an environment where my students freely get to choose a comfortable seating spot(s) that allow them to be relaxed and yet productive in their learning.

I strongly believe and research has shown that students do better academically when s/he is allowed to sit in a comfortable atmosphere. “It really says to kids that we trust you to choose where you learn best...the more power you give up the more power you get back! ”Kayla Delzer, Creator of Flexible Seating.
