My Students

I teach 2nd grade in Mesa, Arizona and I really love my students. They are so excited to learn. They come to school every day ready to work so hard. I have 24 kids. They come from various backgrounds and each have something amazing to offer.

My creative and students deserve to learn in enriched ways.

This project would allow me to provide ways for my students to not be sitting in a chair throughout the day. The flexible seating options will make them even more excited and engaged in their learning.

My Project

These materials are so important for my students. Nobody learns well when sitting in a chair all day long. These materials give my students the opportunity to be engaged in their learning throughout the entire day. I provide a lot of learning experiences where students are not sitting at their desks, and it would be nice for my students not to have to sit on the floor.

My students deserve the best education, and having the opportunity to be comfortable in their classroom will enrich their learning experiences.

Even adults do not want to sit at their desks all day long, and these materials will provide the kind of atmosphere that adults crave but in my 2nd grade classroom.
