My Students

I have the privilege of teaching a wonderful group of second grade students who are excited about school and learning.

My students come from a diverse background where some of them face challenges.

Some of which include being below benchmark in reading and or math. I ensure that every student is successful by modeling safe, respectful, and responsible behavior, as well as directly teaching these things in my class. Students are given high expectations, because through support and a caring environment they can and will grow!

My Project

I've had to tell too many students over the years, "don't poke, don't touch that kid... etc" With flexible seating, students have choice. This choice allows them to sit in an area and sometimes a particular seat where they "work best"!

Some students have the ability to sit and listen for hours on end, others, need the movement that will be provided by the flex wobble chair.

It has been proven through research that providing choice and flexible seating creates an environment that is encouraging and will stimulate learning, collaboration, and help my students be successful.

Flexible seating gives them the freedom to be independent learners.
