My Students

It's tough in middle school. My students are still trying to figure out who they are and what's important to them. My students are excited to learn and show enthusiasm for sharing their knowledge with others. They are extremely interested in technology and how technology can change lives.

My students come from an economically depressed area of Ohio.

Ninety percent of the students in our school receive free or reduced-price lunch. All of my students will benefit from having access to new books that will benefit their future.

My Project

I have been interested in introducing flexible seating arrangements in my middle school classroom for years. It is big in lower grades, but what would it look like for older students? What do my middle school students need to help them focus and be comfortable? A number of my students like to sit on the floor, and these floor chairs and lap desks will make it easy and comfortable for them to work. I have chosen a lap desk that will let them work on their computer as they are seated in the floor chair.

Flexible seating will add enjoyment to learning and help students to choose a comfortable work space.

I can't wait for my students to have the ability to choose their seating arrangements and see how these seating choices will enable them to interact when they are working in small groups.
