My Students

The students in my school are some of my favorite kids around. They come from an area that has made many of them grow up far too quickly. Many are faced with adult problems on a daily basis, but this does not define them. They are smart, independent and accepting. They have dreams, but it is sometimes hard for them to see what the distant future could hold, when their nearer future can seem troublesome. Over the next few years, many of them will wonder why education is important. Many will experience things beyond their years. Many of them will lose interest in school. Lets change that together. It truly does "take a village" to raise a child.

My Project

My students will use these chairs with a low to the floor table. This will give them a comfortable spot to work collaboratively in small groups! Using flexible seating options allows students to move around in the classroom. These chairs will allow them to do just that. It will give them a space that is kid friendly and will allow them to be able to move about more freely. I think this will add a great flexible seating option for my more wiggly students other than our wobble chairs. I want my students to have a variety of seating options so that they can pick what best meets their needs.
