My Students

Environment shapes experience. My students are fun, active, creative kids who all learn by sitting, standing, laying and bouncing! Flexible seating with soft lighting is the BEST choice!

I am always looking for innovative ways to ignite my students' love of learning and make school exciting every day!

I want to empower my students to have choice and control over their learning environment. By incorporating flexible seating in my classroom, students will be able to choose where they work and with whom. It will also allow them to change their location and positions as needed. The soft lighting will also take away the harshness of the florescent lights.

My Project

Fluorescent lights that flicker cause harsh learning environments in schools. I often have my lights turned off in order to provide the best environment for learning for my students. Although dark, it helps the majority of my students stayed focused on their learning.

By donating to our project, you will not only help to improve and increase student attention and focus, you will ultimately help to increase their academic achievement.

Fluorescent light shades will allow me to keep the lights on in my classroom all while also keeping students attention on their learning and not the flicker of the lights.
