My Students

I am lucky and proud to say I teach an amazing group of second grade students. They are bright, unique, inquisitive, and sweet as can be. They come to school each day ready and excited to learn. I love how passionate they are about learning new things and they make my job that much better. I hear every day about how much they love school. It makes my heart happy to hear them express their love of learning. I know they will go far and I can’t wait to see the places they’ll go.

My Project

“Get up and get moving!” This is what I tell my students daily when I feel like we need to get our creative juices flowing. Students spend so much time at a desk all day that it’s nice to get up and find somewhere comfortable where they can relax and focus on their work. When students feel comfortable and happy they’re more likely to produce better work. I know that when my students are happy, they are engaged and excited to learn. With the cushions added to chairs, it will keep kids more engaged during our small group time which is crucial in trying to reach each student and their needs. With the couch and floor seating, students can get comfortable and focused on their work during workshop time or lost in their favorite book during our independent reading time. With flexible seating, I believe this will make our classroom an even better space for learning. By donating to our project that is what you will provide my students with: comfort and engagement.
