My Students

My students are an energetic group of creative and enthusiastic inquirers. They love to keep their hands and minds busy building, creating, solving, inquiring, and discovering new things.

We use a variety of learning strategies, group work, technology, and learning options to ensure that each student can meet their learning goals.

They are a great group of kids. I am so lucky and thankful to have a new group of students each year that are excited and ready to learn !

As we learn 21st century skills to help prepare them for their future, they are curious and inquisitive, and they demonstrate confidence as they eagerly share their knowledge. Each child in my classroom absolutely loves learning!

My Project

My first grade students love to learn! Learning in our classroom takes place in a variety of different ways! We do a lot of collaborating and team work in our classroom and flexible seating offers the students the opportunity to find the right spot for them to do their best work.

This table that is low to the ground will be ideal for students that struggle to sit in a chair at their desk, but love to get down on the floor and get closer to their work.

This table will give them the opportunity to use their flexible seating environment to complete their work in an optimum setting that is right for their needs.

Whether they are working on an individual assignment or planning with their team, a flexible seating environment gives them the opportunity to be responsible, feel confident about their choices, find a spot that works the best for them, and develop a working routine that will help them grow and learn.
