My Students

Our Junior/Senior High School is located in a small town community where families will do everything and anything to help each other. Students in this building range from 5th graders to seniors in high school.

One of the benefits of this building is being able to see how the older students mentor the younger students!

These students have such a special bond between them! It makes me proud to work in a building where everyone looks out for each other!

My Project

My students are extremely hard workers but it is tough sitting in desks! Many of my students need to move and desks do not always provide the best opportunity for movement. Having some exercise ball chairs will allow my students to constructively move around while learning! My students also love using the fidget cubes! I have one and it is always in use.

Help my students release their energy in positive, constructive ways!

I have found that if my students are able to move around and "fidget" they retain more information and produce better work! Thank you in advance for helping my students be successful!
