My Students

Most of my students in my classroom come from low socioeconomic status and various cultural backgrounds. Most students speak two languages. They practice a growth mindset when challenges arise and see mistakes as a learning opportunity.

My students love learning, they work collaboratively and are ready to explore their imagination and creative thinking skills with challenging STEM activities, research projects, technology, science and math concepts.

They strive to do their best everyday in all academic subjects despite the hardships they may face every day.

Overall, my students come to school ready to learn. They truly inspire me everyday and my goal is to try to give them a successful year filled with meaningful learning.

My Project

Imagine all those times in school and meetings when we only had one choice, a chair to sit on. We would lose focus and get distracted. There's so much positive research on giving students flexible seating in classrooms. Students focus more throughout the school day and perform better academically.

I would like to give my students more options to our flexible seating classroom; to make them feel comfortable and relax so they can focus on more important things such as learning.

Students will not grow tired as the day progress as their bodies will have the opportunity adjust in a seat they prefer.
