My Students

My students are a diverse group of learners attending a Title 1 school in Atlanta, Georgia. Our school is unique because it is also state STEM certified, and last school year we became the first state certified STEAM school in Georgia! My classroom consists of gifted students, English language learners, and general education students.

I love working with this group of students because they come prepared every day to engage in work that will enhance their creativity, collaboration, and their citizenship.

My students require activities and projects that are engaging, have real-world connections, and provide choice. They are problem solvers, each with different learning styles from visual to kinesthetic.

My Project

Standard desks and chairs can get uncomfortable. Flexible seating options allow my students opportunities to work where they are comfortable so they can better focus on the task at hand. The soft seat cushions will provide another seating option, in addition to stools and bean bags we already use, for students to comfortably complete independent and group work. Students will also be able to use lap trays and clip boards on the carpet while working alone or collaborating with their peers.

We also need two additional floor lamps and stringed lights to take our classroom environment to the next level.

In addition to saving energy, lamps help create a calming environment that harsh overhead lights cannot. Flexible seating options and lighting powerfully change the classroom environment to one that is warm, inviting, and nurturing to the creative mind.
