My Students

My 3rd grade class is filled with highly inquisitive students. At this age, they are really starting to explore the diverse community around them and the highly inclusive people who make a difference in their community. What better way for my students to understand about citizenship and community leaders than by watching generous donors in action?!

My students come from many different backgrounds, which is a wonderful by-product of serving a large military community.

The majority of my class deals with personal issues including special needs, ADHD, and anxiety. I teach in a Title I school in Eastern North Carolina that was impacted by Hurricane Florence, where about 74% of the students receive free or reduced-price breakfast and lunch. A high number of the students also participate in the backpack program that ensures the students have enough food to last the weekend; my classroom has three students who participate in this program.

My Project

My students need flexible seating options to help them optimize their learning potential. Flexible seating allows my students to learn and grow in a relaxing, stress-free environment because being uncomfortable will cause them to fidget and move around. The comfy couch and chair will allow the students to sit around the room and get out of their unforgiving seats to share space and work with their peers more comfortably.

Many of my students need to move around either because they cannot stay still or have difficulties focusing.

The flexible seating options will enhance the learning environment of my classroom. When possible, within the structure of my classroom I like to allow small degrees of independent thought among the students. Giving them this choice of seating options is one of those opportunities to take more responsibility for their learning.
