I am a 1st grade Bilingual Teacher in Dallas. The population who attend my school is 96% Hispanic. Breakfast, lunch and snacks are free.
The majority of my students came from Mexico and Centro America, their living conditions are tough since they have to share apartments with a lot of different people, their families work the whole day leaving them alone most of the time, in consequence it is hard for them to comply homework, projects or daily reading.
One thing I love about my students is that they have beautiful personalities, also they are curious and and always ready to learn.
My students, my school and my community deserve a high quality education, my goal is to provide it, for that reason I need more support in order to reach my goals and better serve to my students.
Flexible seating allows students to take charge of their learning and make the choices that work best for them. My students love to work on the carpet. Making sure students are comfortable is an essential component in motivating them. I have noticed amazing differences in my students when they are given a choice in their seating. They almost always make good choices about where they sit, are more engaged, and get more work completed than when they are just sitting at a regular chair. My students are noticeably more engaged and they are less disruptive of their peers when they are sitting on a carpet. The carpet that I have selected will help my students by giving them additional seating options to make more effective their time of work collectively. I have seen how choice can positively affect my students work and demeanor and hope that the additional options will help us grow even more.
