My Students

As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to keep things simple and provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences.

My students are creative, clever and very spontaneous.

They like to move, they love to read and love lots of positive attention. Many of them are being raised in single-parent households and receive a free lunch based on their socioeconomic status. These things may prevent them from getting ahead early in life and may not provide them with the life experiences many of us see as "typical". From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom, I focus on their potential and growth while they are with me. I may not be able to control their home lives; however, I can certainly control their experience during the school day. By doing this in a creative and positive way, I am hoping to inspire even our earliest learners to continue on a path of academic excellence.

My Project

As my students enter first grade, it quickly becomes a challenge for them in terms of curriculum. By providing them with a variety of choices in the classroom to be successful, it eliminates some anxiety around traditional seating. Providing my students with a multitude of choices will allow them to truly choose the seating option that is best for them.

Different seating choices provide my students with options for their specific needs.

A storage ottoman doubles as a seat for a partner group as well as a great way for me to store more items discreetly. A bean bag chair is available for students who prefer more of a cozy place to work. Do-nut chairs will also provide my students with an extra choice as a small seat to work on the floor with. Due to each student being able to choose a new spot each day, I need an easy way for students to move their materials including tubs and bins.
