My Students

My students are very curious and inquisitive learners. They love to be challenged and they love hands-on projects. They are constantly excited to learn. They are future writers, mathematicians, scientists, community organizers, and great thinkers. They are a unique group coming from not only different cultural and economic backgrounds but also different areas of the state. Some students commute over an hour every day to attend our school.

Not only are my students amazing but our school is also excellent.

We have amazing teachers, rigorous and exciting academics, and we provide a safe learning environment for all students.

My Project

I have been slowly transforming my classroom into a flexible seating environment. My students have really enjoyed this change. They love being able to move around the classroom, sit on the floor with pillows, and sit on couches. These active learning stools will replace flimsy stools and give students more choice when it comes to seating. I have had the opportunity to observe students on these stools and they are able to focus more on their work since they can move their bodies. These would be a wonderful addition to the classroom and really help active students to stay on task.
