My Students

My school is a Title I school located in the inner city of Atlanta. My students are a group of high energy students that love to stay engaged in things that will help them learn. They enjoy playing educational computer games and working with educational manipulatives to figure out new ways of solving problems. They are a driven set of individuals who embody the willingness to learn at its highest. Although their backgrounds are diverse, economically and culturally, they still have the drive to be the best no matter their circumstances.

My Project

The Gaiam Balance Ball Chair will make a difference in my student’s learning by allowing them to flex their brains and their bodies. This balance ball will allow my students to focus more intently when actively balancing their body on a balance ball. These balls will be used in small groups so that my students are able to have more flexible seating. I truly believe this product will help my students have a more positive effect on how they learn, grow and even play. Sitting does not have to be boring. My scholars will love this healthy and fun alternative to the basic, boring chair during center time.
