My Students

I work in an elementary school in Hamden, CT. Many of our students come from tough circumstances, but they know that if they work hard and set goals, they can achieve whatever they put their minds to. I try my best to inspire them to work hard each day to reach their full potential, despite life's many obstacles. Our school is 82% minority, and 73% of our students receive free and reduced lunch.

My students need every helping hand they can get as they climb their way to the top.

With lots of energy and so much to learn, flexible seating options will really help them stay focused on their work.

My Project

My students work hard in school all day, transitioning through class lessons, small groups, workshops, partnerships, and independent work. All this variety keeps them engaged and challenged. It also means that students need to be able to sit comfortably in different areas!

Research shows that allowing kids to move while they learn improves concentration.

Students can wiggle and wobble safely and discreetly on these Learniture stools. Also, stools like these are light and portable, so they can serve a variety of purposes for student work.

Having these stools available will help ease transitions between activities, preserving more time on task. They will help keep students comfortable and focused so that they can worry about what matters most— their learning.
