My Students

As a teacher in a Title 1 school district, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I am trying to create a 21st century classroom that will not only benefit my students this year but encourage them to be life-long learners.

My students have the ability to make a change in their lives as well as the lives around them.

Every child is an individual and requires individual needs. Most of my students are second language learners as well as having special needs. Most struggle with self control and most struggle with anxiety. These two alone hinder their learning. I know that I can't control much, but I can control the ways in which my students can learn and making sure that they are comfortable is a necessity. I am hopeful to change their view of learning by creating a comfortable and welcoming classroom environment.

My Project

Flexible seating allows students to find comfortable positions throughout the classroom. Comfortable students are calm, focused, and productive. Many of my students struggle in their daily lives...allowing them to be comfortable will allow them to feel relaxed and learn.

Students learn better when they have a chance to work together.

Traditional desks in rows isolate students from each other. Flexible seating allows students to choose where they work and with whom. It also allows them to change their location and positions as needed.

According to Edutopia, giving students choices about their physical classroom space teaches them higher order thinking skills.

Alternative classroom seating can really change a classroom from everybody's perspective.
