My Students

Working at a school where 98% of the students are economically disadvantaged, I work hard to ensure students have the resources they need to succeed. The 130+ students I teach each school year need motivation to come to class each day and work hard to reach the goals set forth. Our school is the main food source for the majority of our students and the classroom is their "home" for the day. These students are very deserving of a welcoming and flexible classroom.

My Project

Providing my students with a flexible seating classroom will allow them to become more focused on short and long term goals throughout the semester. By having a variety of seats such as beach chairs, yoga mats, and "picnic/stadium style" seats and providing flexibility in the classroom, students will be able to focus on the assigned tasks and will be more comfortable in the school setting. Behavior issues and fidgeting in traditional desks will eliminate distractions to classmates and will allow students to stay focused and productive. This flexible seating environment will allow students to achieve goals and succeed in my Earth Science class.
