My Students

My class is full of sweet students who are language learners. They faithfully come to school each day ready to learn. Unfortunately, most of these students are economically disadvantaged and come from families with a great deal of instability. These sweet children are often dealing with different types of trauma in their lives which makes learning even harder for them.

Partnering with us will help great students become even greater!

Allowing students to be active and have room to move around while learning makes learning easier. Our classroom is a place where we have a positive growth mind set and where we work hard every day to be our best.

My Project

Sitting still is not easy for many of us. When my students get to work on their own, they usually choose the floor or other chairs in the room to complete their work. When they are more comfortable, more work gets completed. Flexible seating allows students to move around the room, collaborate with others in a more comfortable way.

Flex-Space Balance Ball and Floor Seats are a perfect way to keep students active and help with their educational goals.

Students need movement and this is one way to help them focus and build stamina for testing time. Anything that can help my students be successful is a blessing.
