My Students

I teach an exceptional group of students at an elementary school in the San Francisco Bay Area. My students are focused, motivated and diligent in their pursuit of their goals.

No matter their ambition, these students pursue their aims with vigor.

One fact remains constant, they learn in different ways.

This group of students is kind, safe and respectful. They are curious, motivated and supportive. They are generous, enthusiastic and understanding. They deserve all of the support I can give.

My Project

The students in this classroom have a variety of learning needs, from academic to sensory. Completing classwork, especially work that feels challenging or uncomfortable, is so much more appealing with a comfy place to sit. Allowing students choice in seating in the classroom helps them feel in control of their learning needs, even if they can't control the assignments.

The comfy seats, ball chairs, and floor seats will give my students the opportunity to have some autonomy in their school experience.

Providing my students a choice of where they will most effectively complete their assignments will help grow confidence, independence and enthusiasm for persevering through the most arduous assignments.
