My Students

In our district, there are many schools that are Title I. Our school specifically is considered Title I, however, we don´t receive the funds because other schools have a higher percentage than ours and have a higher need for the district funds.

I have 24 first graders this year and each family has different backgrounds and experiences.

They usually enter the door with huge smiles on their faces knowing that you will be there to support them. I love teaching first grade. First graders can be resilient when given an opportunity to learn in a fun, positive, and safe learning environment.

I am also lucky enough to work with a great staff of committed teachers who work hard each and every day to support our students.

My Project

It has been proven that studentś focus more when they can get their wiggles out. I am incorporating the flex seating movement into my classroom and these four requested Hokki Stools will make a great addition.

These stools will allow my students to move in a way that will engage their core muscles which will help increase blood flow to the brain.

The stools will be perfect to get students moving without any loud distractions. They will allow the fidgety child or a child who needs to release energy to do so in a safe manner. The child whom you thought has a hard time being able to focus because they need movement, could now have a chance to succeed.
