My Students

I currently teach at a great school in a great school district. Unfortunately, Hurricane Harvey has uprooted a lot of my students and I have several new students that were affected by the storm move to my school. I teach 4th grade and my students are eager to learn and show great character as we were the first school in the district to be awarded a National School of Character.

In my math class, I am learning that students need more and more of an opportunity to move around and learn in various ways.

I am in the process of re-creating my classroom environment to be more flexible so that students feel more comfortable which will lead to them being more successful.

My Project

More and more students are coming to school needing to have opportunities to sit in unconventional desks. Today's kids are different kinds of learners than we were growing up so schools need to adapt with them as well.

Flexible seating consists of seating that allows students the freedom to move more while working.

Exercise balls, stools, and pillows are great resources to have in my classroom to allow movement. Teachers have found that this especially helps students with ADHD. Allowing students to work on the floor and at lowered tables has been very beneficial to many teachers at my school.
