My Students

I have a remarkable group of students that continue to surprise me day after day. Some may not live in the best of circumstances or have the best of everything, but they come to school everyday with the desire to learn and a positive attitude. My students are very active and would benefit from having avenues to express that energy throughout their learning day. They give me their best everyday and deserve to have the best materials and resources in return.

My Project

These Wobble Cushions will allow kids to be kids (wiggles and all!) and learn at the same time. They can fidget in a safe, non-distracting way. No more rocking back in forth in chairs, causing constant tapping on the floor, sitting on hard plastic chairs, or leaning back in their chair as far as they can. I will no longer have to worry about students getting hurt when chairs fall over, etc.

These cushions will allow me to teach without the constant interruptions that fidgeting can cause.

My students will have the ability to focus on their work and be better prepared for their future. It's a win-win for all!!
