My Students

My classroom is filled with eager learners! My kindergarten students come from varying backgrounds, but most come from low-income households. Many of my students have never been to school before and are just now learning foundational skills. However, their desire to learn is contagious and refreshing.

As a teacher, I want my students to have everything that they need to make their learning experiences both effective and memorable.

They deserve to have access to the same things that other children in more affluent neighborhoods do. It is my hope to inspire a love for learning in these children!

My Project

Flexible seating offers choices for students to find where they learn best. Not every child can sit in a traditional chair for six hours a day nor should they have to.

When students are offered choices, student engagement increases and so does their ability to learn.

Flexible seating empowers children to find alternative seating when they feel that they need to move to be calm, focused and productive. When students are able to move in the classroom, they are more alert and negative behavior tends to decline.

My students will be thrilled to have wobble chairs and comfortable floor chairs to choose from in our classroom. They deserve to come to school each day and learn in a way that it is both comfortable and conducive to their learning styles.
