My Students

I teach 20 second grade students who are eager to learn. My "Shining Stars" are thoughtful, polite, and hard working. They work together and help each other to shine brightly. Our classroom is a place where the students love to learn and love to help each other.

The majority of students at my school receive free or reduced lunch, meaning they qualify for at least part, if not all, of the cost of their meals to be paid for by the district due low parent income.

I teach students at all levels-from above level, to on level, to below level. However, they all come to school wanting to learn with positive attitudes about school, no matter what is going on in their lives.

My Project

With this project, I am looking for different types of stools for my seating in my classroom to offer my students flexible seating options. The stools will provide an alternative to the typical plastic chairs we already have in our classroom and help to make our learning more comfortable and colorful.

Sometimes it is difficult to focus on what we have to do, especially when we are 7 years old and not overly excited about what it is we have to do.

What makes it worse? Having hard plastic chairs that are as uncomfortable as well bland and boring to look at. These colorful, comfortable stools will help to provide all of my students an alternative to the hard plastic chairs, and help to get focus back on their learning. By providing different options, students will get to choose what they sit on, helping them to take charge of their learning and help them keep focused on the reading skills we are practicing in the classroom.
