My Students

In our classroom community, the students are my spectacular second graders! We encourage creativity, student choice, positive leadership, responsibility, respect, and building caring relationships. I love getting to know each individual student. They each have something wonderful to provide to our classroom community.

Every student learns in different ways, so I strive to build positive relationships and offer students choices to meet their specific learning styles and needs.

We are a low income district with a high free and reduced lunch percentage.

My Project

Every student learns differently, why should they all have to sit in the same chair to learn? Flexible seating allows students to choose comfortable seating where they can learn best. When students are comfortable, they are calm, focused, and productive. Flexible seating also encourages students to share space and supplies which creates a caring classroom community.

If my project is funded, I will be able to offer some other flexible seating options such as stools and ball chairs to my students.

Students will be able to use all of the seating until they find the perfect learning spot for them!

Flexible seating will benefit all students by allowing movement, comfort, sensory input, choice, collaboration, and building a positive community.
