My Students

This fall, I will be returning to an elementary classroom for the first time in 8 years. I will be teaching 4th grade at a wonderful community school in Florida. While I don't know my specific students yet, I have met the students at LFE, and have learned the following about them:

* They are sweet and curious, thirsting for knowledge about the world around them and are quick to ask questions about almost everything new they encounter.

* They are problem-solvers and have a perseverance that is very rare in children this age. Whether it's reading a difficult text, or working a challenging math problem, they are dedicated to meeting the challenges that come their way.

* They are without many advantages that their peers have, and that is why I am creating this project. I want to provide them with a learning environment that will meet their needs and excite their minds. They so deserve it!

My Project

In thinking about setting up my classroom for next year, I thought about the physical configuration and how I can design a classroom to meet the needs of my students. Yes, I want my classroom to be warm, colorful and inviting but I also want it to promote learning for every student!

Flexible Seating offers all students the opportunity to select the classroom configuration that works best for them.

Some days, that might be a traditional desk and chair. On others, it might be a balance ball or a bean bag with a lap board. By funding this project you will help me establish an environment that promotes focus, self-awareness, and choice. What a great formula for success!
