My Students

I teach the best bunch of middle schoolers. They come from many different types of families and experiences. A lot of my students come to school to escape their home lives. I hope that my classroom is a safe haven for all my seventh and eighth graders. I look forward to greeting them every morning to show them that I'm so excited to see them! I'll never understand why people cringe when I tell them I teach middle school because I love it!

My Project

Students sit 50-70% of the school day. This can result in health and concentration problems. A standing desk serves many purposes in a classroom. While not all students will use the desk, it is helpful for those who wish to.

Some students wish to stand, and, as a result of being able to, they are more productive in class.

Having choices for students on where and how they sit or stand in a classroom is beneficial because it gives them the opportunity to choose the best spot for themselves and their learning.

Sometimes something as simple as getting up from the traditional desk, walking around a bit to get to the standing desk, and then standing at it to work can be enough to refocus and revive a tired student. This desk will give my students that choice.
