My Students

Our school serves students in grades K-5 and provides rigorous academics, fantastic teachers and a safe learning environment. As a result, we are consistently one of the top-performing schools in the state every year. Our goal is to prepare our students for success in their future.

I service third grade students with varying achievement levels.

This is a crucial year because it is the transition year from learning to read to reading to learn. Not to mention the first year they take that big scary standardized tests at the end of the year, which determines whether they are promoted to 4th grade!

My Project

Our students come in all shapes and sizes, but yet we try and shove them all in identical desks. They're uncomfortable and distracted. A distracted student is not going to be productive.

Traditional styled desks are not compatible with the skills necessary for us to produce career and college ready students.

They do not allow students the ability to easily collaborate and create community. Flexible seating allows students choices. We all like choices and choice empowers our learners to take ownership over their lessons. Flexible seating teaches our students avocation skills, decision making skills and teaches them to self reflect. They must make a decision on which seating arrangement and where will best serve them during either varying student activities.
