My Students

I am a fourth grade teacher with the best students anyone could ever ask for. My students are loving, caring and super talented! Having the right tools in the classroom is key to our learning. Having iPads in our classroom would help with small group instruction and writing!

The kids in my class are the greatest kids in the world and I have the privilege and opportunity to work with them day in and day out.

They are a bunch of kids who have bright futures ahead!

My Project

Having flexible seating options will give my students a feel of calm. When you provide students with a calm and comfortable atmosphere, you will in turn see calmer behaviors and better quality work. Our children deserve the best and most comfortable work spaces to be able to achieve that high quality work that we strive for. We will be using these seating options for small group guided reading, partner and shared reading and writing, along with daily work time. These seats will make for a home like feel in our classroom. When you are at ease it takes the pressure off of daily stressors.
