My Students

I am so happy to experience my first year of teaching with 23 amazing, funny, kind and smart students! These 2nd graders are caring, thoughtful, and resilient. They all come from different backgrounds, but still find a way to support, encourage and challenge each other.

My hope is to create an environment that meets all the needs of my students.

These students have a lot of energy and love to move! I want to provide my students a safe place that allows them to grow and learn.

My Project

My students have endless energy and are always seeking opportunities to move. So far, I've been able to differentiate seating using low cost methods, but these seats would allow me to meet my students' need to move. By providing them a safe, non-disruptive tool the students will be able move while also increasing their focus and stamina.

The seats will allow them to move side to side, back and forth or in circles discretely while not distracting others.

Meeting my students needs will positively impact our classroom allowing for an overall healthier and calm learning environment.

Thank you for reading about our project! Your generosity is shaping current and future education!
