My Students

My seventh grade classroom is a place where student engagement and value is key. My students are encouraged to ask questions, participate, and by the end of the year, become independent learners and thinkers.

After 5 years of teaching in another state, I have moved back to my home state and am beyond ready to work in my new district.

My school district is a small town, located just south of two major colleges and universities. The middle school has a population of just under 200. My students come from a range of learning abilities and home lives, but are capable of achieving greatness in and out of the classroom.

My Project

My classroom is full of tables and hard chairs that aren't always the most ideal learning situation for my students. Because my students are in their teens and still growing, sitting for long periods of time on hard chairs don't allow them to be able to focus for long. Although they often stand and move, sometimes it's always nice when you can learn in a comfy chair.

Giving students options to learn in comfort can help promote a positive learning environment where they can be successful.

By choosing between a cushion, bungee chair, or the high-top table to stand at, students are able to reflect on what their needs are for the day to make sure that they have engaging day!
