My Students

This year I am in charge of instruction for two classroom sets of students, as we have decided to try a new approach in learning this school year, with a co-teaching model. I am blessed to have students coming from many diverse cultures and backgrounds within our classroom. There will be a focus on 40 students as opposed to an average of 17 each school year. I hope for students to have exciting learning experiences that help them grow as individuals in my classroom.

My Project

Students deserve to have more than one option of seating each day. By having alternate seating in the classroom, it gives students the choice of where to work and do their best on a daily basis. By providing multiple areas around the classroom where students can feel comfortable and remain focused will provide different areas for students who need to work in a quieter setting or have the option of working in more than one setting through the day. By including the mini seat desks in our classroom, I could even hold a small group in other locations through out the room.
