My Students

Despite living in an area with a low socioeconomic background my students stay encouraged to come to school and learn. Most of my students are transient, which results in constant classroom changes. It is important for me as a teacher to have a significate impact on the timeframe I am allotted with each student. I value the time I have with each student regardless of what that may be.

My students are special and deserve the opportunity to have the best educational experience.

I want to provide them with the resources they need to continue to be successful. Moreover, give them the hope they need to carry on with their educational goal even when life outside of school can be difficult.

My Project

With these new seats my students will be able to have a comfortable learning environment. They will be able to find the best seating arrangement that will support their learning.

In this new day and age sitting on a chair and desk is no longer the only way for students to learn.

I want my students to find a spot that is the most fitting for them to learn and be successful.

My students will feel at home and relaxed in what can be considered a stressful year for them. Providing a classroom environment that is calming and comforting is my goal.
