My Students

Our class is a diverse group, made up of 30 eager minds. Students of various socioeconomic and cultural backgrounds come together every day with one goal in mind... to succeed.

In addition to their diverse backgrounds, these students have a variety of learning needs.

They come to school with a thirst for learning that can be advanced further with effective small group instruction and technology.

Although my students come to school every day enthusiastic and motivated, they do not have access to some basic items that would be extremely beneficial to their progress and education.

My Project

Our class is made up of 30 eager and motivated students. Unfortunately, with 30 students comes no extra space in the classroom. It is often very difficult to find a comfortable space to meet with small groups. Small groups allow for me to differentiate instruction based on students’ strengths and weaknesses. It is such an important part of the instructional day, and I would love the opportunity to maximize this time with the use of a kidney-shaped table.

With a kidney-shaped table, students sit around the teacher, maximizing small group instruction which further promotes academic growth.

It can be used in various subject areas, helping students reach their goals faster while also being more comfortable in their small group setting!
