My Students

My amazing students are hardworking, enthusiastic, driven children. They come from a variety of different home lives and in my classroom they come together as one that all deserve an equal education.

My students will make a difference in our world.

They accept challenges that are given to them and they love working hard! They never give up and even though they are all different they are all willing to help each other in any circumstance. These students are truly one of a kind!

My Project

Over the years in education, I have seen the impact flexible seating has made in a child's life. When we think about how the child learns at home, they are probably not at a desk.

We are all different and learn differently too.

Some students need a stool to help with posture to keep them focused. Other students made need to lay back in a comfortable Big Joe or on a yoga ball for stability. It is proven that students who are comfortable when reading retain more information and are more successful on tests. Everyone is different and it is time we treat our classrooms like a home and accept the different comforts of learning!
