My Students

This year I am lucky to teach a vibrant and energetic group of students. They are eager learners, smart and kind. My students work very hard learning all the standards in Spanish and English in a Dual Language program.

My Learners come from many different backgrounds and with their unique learning style.

So many of my kids love to work while standing or need breaks to stay productive. Many of my students need to be constantly moving while they work.

As their second home away from home, I try to make the classroom an inviting place where they can learn and stay motivated. We play music and practice mindfulness activities to maximize our time together. My goal is to create a classroom in which all my kids have the opportunity to access the curriculum.

My Project

My learners are super smart and love learning in two languages but we are a wiggly bunch and our hard and heavy chairs make it very difficult for little learners to move freely and safely.

My kids will be more productive and have more fun if they have a space they can learn while having the freedom to move.

If my project gets funded, I will set up an area where they can use the wobble chairs to concentrate and work collaboratively. My kids will love the bouncy yoga balls to quietly fidget and learn safely--no more falling off heavy chairs! Our rug is VERY old and it wrinkles easily. I constantly have to adjust it so students don't trip over it. A less stimulating and calming rug will be just the right gathering area for our morning meetings and mini lessons.
