My Students

I teach fabulous fourth graders. I have 28 students in my class who are excited to learn.

We are a classroom of diverse learners.

A third of my class are ELL students who are still learning English. I also have students from low-income households. In our class, we learn about all the wonderful ways we are different but still come together to work as a school family.

Throughout the day our learning requires us to work in small groups, independently, or as a whole class. We are constantly changing where we are working, and who we are working with.

Every day I am so thankful for the wonderful group of students I am privileged to lead.

My Project

The last two days I spent in a workshop, sitting on a hard folding chair. I will admit, I couldn't do my best work because I was so uncomfortable. I then realized this must be how my students feel in their chairs and desks. So I am hoping to build a classroom with flexible seating options for students.

I am looking to purchase bean bag chairs, chair pads, camp chairs and balance balls so that students have a variety of comfortable seating options.

I know that if students can work in their best learning environment that they will be able to focus more on their learning.

I can already see my students scattered around the room, cozy in their seating choice, reading a book, or solving a math problem!
