My Students

My students are thoughtful and eager learners. We are a Title I school in a suburb of Chicago. Students in my class are culturally diverse and bring many positive attributes to our school community everyday. Their love for learning keeps me striving to find the best educational design for my students.

In my 3rd grade class, students use a variety of strategies everyday to enhance their learning and be successful.

Students are enthusiastic about using unique tools to help them progress through a transitional year.

My Project

This is my second year of flexible seating in my classroom, and students love being able to choose where they learn best. I have an amazing bench that converts into a table, and would love to be able to add a second one to my flexible seating options.

Students are eager to try out different seating options in my flexible seating classroom.

My students are crazy about it, and it is everyone's first choice.

They are lightweight and easy to move. If I had another one, I could make them into a full picnic table, or use them independently. They are lightweight and easy to move. When the warm weather returns, I could move them outside and use them as an outdoor classroom.
