My Students

My class consists of 25 incredible, hard working students. My class is a group of sixth grade students who are preparing for the next step in life, junior high. At this stage they are trying to gain independence to help better learning.

To help them better learn it is important they are in a comfortable, organized environment.

My students are learning social studies, math, reading/writing, and science. I want to make the best learning environment for them to learn these subjects, plus teamwork, independence, responsibility, and more.

My students are there to learn for themselves. They also love learning in small groups and helping their classmates. They are engaged in their learning and their community.

My Project

As a first year teacher my flexible seating options are limited. I would like to give my students more seating options. By doing this they will have a comfortable cozy learning environment that provides them with a choice. It can help the students better collaborate and do small groups.

Flexible seating can help teach my students more responsibility with choosing their seating, and making smart decisions with their choice.

I believe this seating will help my students participate and engage in class more. Your donation could help my students in their achievement in their academics and in their future education.
