My Students

I teach a wonderful group of first-graders in an English and Mandarin Chinese dual-language school. My students are bright, inquisitive, and eager to learn. Each one has a unique personality that I have enjoyed getting to know these first months of the school year. Some are playful, sociable, and talkative, while others are thoughtful, controlled, and attentive.

Each one of my students contributes to the vibrant mosaic of individual and collective creativity that makes up our classroom community.

Many of our students come from immigrant families and bring with them a variety of cultures from around the world.

My Project

My students are 6 years old first graders. It is very difficult for them to sit still at a desk for long periods of time. Each year, I have one or two students for whom movement is even more important, but getting out of their seats and walking around the room frequently can be very distracting for other classmates. During this pandemic, it will be even more important for students to limit movement and remain in their seats.

These lap desks will offer them a flexible seating option that will allow them to maintain a safe social distance from their classmates.

Some students focus better when they can wiggle a bit. Wiggling while they are seated on the floor is much safer than wiggling in a chair where they can run the risk of tipping a chair over.
