More than three-fourths of my students come from a low-income background. They also live in apartment complexes and have a transitional background in their living arrangements. School is a safe haven and happy place where I can inspire them to grow.
My students have a thirst for knowledge and aspire for growth every day.
The parents strive to give their children more but might lack the ability to know how to accomplish this task. Educators at our school strive daily to give our students the best education, love, and nurturing that we can!
My students live in the Houston area where Hurricane Harvey came in August. Our district was suffered losses in many schools, and we missed many instructional days of class. It was difficult for our students to return and start a routine again when so many had gone through a loss or had other family members going through a loss of a home.
Flexible seating provides a comfortable alternative to chairs and desks in the classroom. The seating types indicated in this project will allow students flexible seating throughout my classroom while they work independently or in a whole group. Students will be able to use clipboards while sitting in a flexible seating arrangement. This will help students choose multiple seating areas throughout the day. They will not be limited to sitting at a desk all day.
The comfy seats will allow my students to have flexibility in seating while still having the support of a seat.
The bean bag seats will allow the literacy nook to be more inviting while the wobble seat cushions will allow the students to focus while engaging in independent work in various areas of the classroom.
