My Students

My students range from 6th to 8th grade. Each student has different needs and abilities, and my students often lack the drive and motivation to be academically successful. Allowing students (especially those with differing needs) to have flexible seating not only helps to motivate them, but also allows an outlet that is not disruptive. Flexible seating will allow my students more choice in their learning environment, encouraging their learning in the classroom.

If student motivation and higher engagement is truly the desired end game, then we, as teachers (and our classrooms), must adapt alongside them.

To see that many of our classrooms today still look very much like they did in the classrooms of generations past is a shame.

My Project

Our classroom environments should be conducive to open collaboration, communication, creativity, and critical thinking. This simply cannot be done when kids are sitting in rows of desks all day. I am working to create individual flexible seating options for each of my students.

Flexible seating provides opportunities for engaging instruction.

Students have the ability to choose where to sit, establishing an appropriate learning environment for each individual student. Because all students learn differently, not every student learns best in a traditional desk seating. Flexible seating ensures that each student feels comfortable in their learning environment, in addition to supporting students’ learning needs.
