My Students

We serve the authentically diverse community of Las Vegas, Nevada where we encounter dialects from all over the United States, as well as the influx of Spanish speaking immigrants from Mexico and Cuba. Most of the students we serve come from low to moderate income families that can still bring a wealth of resources to our school.

As their second-grade teacher, I am charged with making sure that these students can write and communicate fluently using English, so that they can grow to successfully advocate for themselves and their communities.

Empowerment comes with the ability to communicate across cultural and geographical boundaries. The kind of human being who can harness this empowerment will likely be successful in college and a productive citizen of our global community.

My Project

Flexible seating allows students to take charge of their learning and make the choices that work best for them. During independent work times, they choose a location in the classroom that works for them.

Currently, my students are choosing to work in a variety of locations in our room such as at different tables or sitting or laying on the bare floor.

Making sure students are comfortable is an essential component in motivating them. I have noticed amazing differences in my students when they are given a choice in their seating. They almost always make good choices about where they sit, are more engaged and get more work completed than when they are just sitting at their desk.

My students are noticeably more engaged in their work and less disruptive of their peers when they are given a choice of where to work. The products that I have selected will help my students by giving them additional seating options to make more effective learning choices. The cubes will allow them to move into my library space where I have no carpet and will allow some movement. The comfy chairs will allow for additional comfortable floor seating options. They are lightweight and can be easily used in many areas of the classroom.

I have seen how choice can positively affect my students' work and demeanor and hope that the additional options will help us grow even more!
