My Students

My students are getting ready to change the world! Hard work, love, and dedication are what they have in their hearts. Each day they use their personalized computers to learn new concepts and skills.

I have an enthusiastic group of third graders who enjoy working in groups, building relationships, and moving each day to fulfill their dreams.

Giving my students what they need to learn is what I strive to accomplish, and these headphones will help them with their love for learning. Thank you for helping us build for tomorrow today.

My Project

Flexible seating is very important to all students in the classroom. Giving students the ability to choose a space in the classroom to work allows each student to give their best in the classroom.

The Stability Ball Seats, Portable Lap Desk, and a Laptop Cart will give my students freedom to move and learn at the same time.

Combining these materials with what is already in the classroom, will make the classroom a flexible place where students are empowered to make wise choices about their own learning. Being able to make these choices on their own will create more involved learners in the classroom now and for the future as well.
