My Students

My students come from a variety of socioeconomic backgrounds, but come to school every day ready to grow. At my school, children learn through hands-on exploration and cross-curricular instruction, supported by a STEAM-focused curriculum.

“What,” “why,” "when," and “how” are words that are embraced and encouraged in my classroom.

Students are agents of their own learning and given the space to investigate their interests. My classroom is a place for students to grow, imagine, build, and thrive, all through learning.

My Project

What does every reading classroom need? A unique and fun place to sit and enjoy a book! These tree stump stools are comfy and fun! They will motivate students to read and enjoy reading. Who doesn't love having a fun spot to read?

These soft tree stump stools will provide a cozy spot to read during guided reading and independent reading time!

The students will get lost in their books while reading on their cozy tree stump stools! They are easy to move around the classroom, and they are soft so no one will get hurt. Students will no longer have to worry about stools falling apart or breaking beneath them. My students are more engaged in reading when they have a different kind of seat to sit on. These stools will serve as fun and functional, sturdy places for students to enjoy reading time.
