My Students

As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to provide my students with meaningful learning experiences that help them be successful.

My students are learners, friends, and a supportive community!

They like to move, they love to read and love lots of positive attention. Many of them are English Language Learners and receive a free lunch based on their socioeconomic status. Some are even homeless. These things may prevent them from getting ahead early in life and may not provide them with the life experiences many of us see as "typical". From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom I focus on their potential and growth while they are with me. I may not be able to control their home lives, however, I can certainly control their experience during the school day. We focus daily on having a growth mindset, and have a saying in our room "mistakes are expected, inspected, corrected and respected." I am hopeful to inspire these kids to continue on a path of academic excellence.

My Project

Many students complain about hard, uncomfortable chairs. Students find it hard to focus when their legs and bum hurt. By providing an array of flexible seating options, students will be able to learn in ways that are more comfortable and enjoyable.

Flexible seating is becoming popular in classrooms today.

Imagine being able to focus on the learning because you are comfortable. These wobble stools will significantly help students who need to move a little while seated and the Nugget couch will give kids a place to read a good book or share ideas with a peer. Students like to have more control over how they learn. As an adult I do not like sitting in hard metal chairs, so why should we ask kids to do so!
