My Students

Every child has the potential to learn. My students are eager 4th graders who love sitting on a mat on the floor in an area that's comfortable. Every morning as they enter the room they ask can they sit on the floor. Flexible seating would allow my students to sit comfortably on the floor and work to maximize their potential.

My vision is to create a unique space where learning can take place and every child can be successful academically.

Most of my students come from low-income households. Can you imagine how much fun learning could be if my students could come into a classroom filled with the comforts of home? They all have specific talents and strengths. They love helping each other succeed. My students don't all learn the same way nor do they learn at the same pace. Flexible seating allows students the flexibility to learn and build on each other ideas. My students' desires, as well as my desire, is for each child to have the opportunity for success and to maximize their potential.

My Project

With the Flex-Space comfy floor seating, students will feel empowered by having a choice and control over their learning. They can choose where to work and with whom to work.

Being in traditional seats makes students uncomfortable and they are easily distracted and unproductive.

The Flex-Space comfy floor seating will encourage students to find the best seat and stay focused.

Having the extra space with the Flex-Space comfy floor seating will give students the flexibility to move around the room to different locations. Students will be encouraged to share ideas. They will become enthusiastic and a more engaged room of students.
