My Students

The students I teach come from a low income, high poverty community. For many of these kids, school is a safe haven and an environment where they can learn and excel. Many of my students bounce back and fourth between homes searching for stability, or have single working parents working multiple jobs, trying to get by.

Despite all of their obstacles, my students walk into my classroom with a smile on their face and eager to learn and explore new topics and ideas each and every day.

It is my top priority to make learning as fun as possible for each of my students.

My Project

Flexible seating allows students to take charge of their learning and make the choices that work best for them. During independent work times they choose a location in the classroom that works for them. Currently, my students are choosing to work at different tables using a variety of seating options such as buckets, camping chairs, and wobble stools. Making sure students are comfortable is an essential component in motivating them. I have noticed amazing differences in my students when they are given a choice in their seating. They almost always make good choices about where they sit, are more engaged, and get more work completed than when they are just sitting in a regular chair. We would love to have more options to choose from that are comfortable and stable. I have seen how choice can positively affect my students’ work and demeanor and hope that the additional options will help us grow even more!
