My Students

I teach 3rd grade at elementary school in Richfield, MN. Our school is full of amazing children who are eager to learn. We are a neighborhood school within a first ring suburb. It is a place where it feels like home the minute you walk through the doors. Our school is fortunate to have families from all over the globe, which brings a great mixture of cultures into our community. We embrace where our students come from, we celebrate their differences and give them an environment that motivates them to work hard.

My Project

Over the past 10+ years, I have been using stability balls as chairs for students in my classroom. I have found the value of giving students the opportunity to move while they learn. It increases their engagement, as well as their ability to focus more on their tasks. I am now moving to flexible seating options in my classroom to give students the ability to choose where and how they learn best. By using wobble chairs in the classroom, students would have another option as to how they learn best. Wobble chairs are an item I know would be a great option for students to be actively engaged learners.
