I walk into a room every day to see the faces of over twenty eager students ready to learn. I get to impact their lives at what many feel is the most influential age.
We may be a small rural town, but our schools are full of passionate teachers and students eager to absorb what we give them every day.
Over a third of our students come from low income households, but they don't let that keep them from being the best they can be.
Have you ever been stuck somewhere, and felt like you just had to get up and move around? Have you ever noticed your attention drifting because you have been still for way too long? Well, this is exactly what happens to many of our students while they are sitting in their classrooms trying to learn.
The accordion style seats I have chosen will allow the students movement while working without the risk of falling.
The students can also take the requested wobble cushions with them wherever they choose to work. These seats will allow them to wiggle while working. Moving while learning can increase the amount of information they retain, and allow them to use the focus necessary to do their best.
