My Students

We are a Montessori public school. In our classroom, we have fourth, fifth, and sixth-grade students all working together. We are all at different levels in our academic careers, with different skills and learning types. Because we are a Montessori public school, we are in the same class for three years, getting to learn and grow as a family.

As a classroom family, we grow, laugh, and learn together.

We enjoy helping each other and sharing information and knowledge. We love to do research and see the world in a different light.

My Project

These lap desks will help my students be able to get their work completed. We are a public Montessori school where the students are allowed to sit on the floor to work. Lap desks would help a lot of my students be able to write more legibly, handle the work better, and complete their work in a more timely manner. Individual, private work spaces help my students sit where they are comfortable and work in a manner that would increase their learning.

I have three lap desks in my room and they are always being used and in great demand.

By having more lap desks in my room, I believe my students would show greater success in their writing and in accomplishing more works.
