My Students

I currently teach at one of the lowest socio-economic schools in New England, where all of my students receive multiple supports and free meals. My students are excited to learn! They come in with big beautiful smiles, yearning for love, knowledge, and a safe, organized environment.

My students give their all each and every day.

They come to school with smiles on their faces, ready to dive into their education. They love reading, writing, math, social studies, and science. Their enthusiasm is contagious and heartwarming.

My Project

My class is full of first graders, they are still learning to share, focus, and remain on task. The flexible seating provides students with options. This will allow them to work hard to earn their favorite seat.

Providing choice allows each student to feel empowered to work their hardest and achieve their dreams.

My students daily with distractions both in and out of school. Being able to choose if they want to sit with a group or work independently for the day will allow them to understand how they learn and what they need to be successful.

The seating will bring not only more success but empowered learners!
