My Students

I work in a high poverty school with very diverse backgrounds. These students are driven because they know how hard life can be without education. They are a sweet group, each with their own story and a wide range of needs. For some of these kiddos school is a safe zone.

I want school to be a place where students are comfortable to be themselves and share their unique gifts with each other.

It is my goal to keep it safe and make it a fun, loving environment where learning happens before they even realize it. I want students to want to learn and love education the way I do. My goal is to show students they can reach their full potential and I will push them there.

My Project

My students will be given more choices in their seating options. They will be able to choose spaces that are stimulating for their specific needs, comfortable for their preferences and functional. They will also be able to engage in classroom activities and conversations in a fun and engaging way using a microphone to make their voices heard from anywhere in the room.

My students love taking ownership of their learning and flexible seating gives them that opportunity!

We are a strong community and being able to move around and work near different people regularly keeps that community alive. We do a lot of whole group activities that will be fun to reflect on using the recording feature with the microphone.

I am requesting a rug for our reading area, we have tile floors in our classroom and need some added comfort in the student library. I am requesting a peanut ball and inflatable chair to give students additional core engaging seating options that allow them to focus on their academics over uncomfortable seats. Chair fidgets would be attached to regular chairs in the room to help those kiddos who need movement constantly. Finally, I am requesting a microphone ball to use in our unique classroom environment to give every student a chance to have their voices heard!
