My Students

I have 24 active 2nd graders who are eager learners and love moving around the room in a workshop type classroom.

We have new flexible seating desks this year, and the movement and flexibility of learning options is an environment my students are thriving in.

I work hard in my classroom to be a "warm demander" where I show students I truly care about each of them, their learning, their passions, and their families, while demanding engagement and effort at the same time.

I truly believe in nurturing the social-emotional aspect of students in order for them to be successful academically. We spend much time during our day together creating an environment where students feel safe, valued, and respected in the classroom.

My students are a joy to teach!

My Project

Movement is essential in a classroom for all students. I aim for a classroom with multiple seating options in order to let students move, which research shows is optimal for stimulating the brain especially in young children.

I would like to have Hokki Stools in my classroom for students who need movement to focus.

I realize that I need a variety of seating options for this particular group of students, and I would like to provide movement stools for learning success and engagement.

Hokki Stools allow for movement in the room, and offer a way for students to partner up and collaborate anywhere in the classroom. They will add to a learning environment which is engaging and fun! My students will benefit from them physically and mentally throughout our day.

I believe in a workshop style classroom where there is a wide variety of seating arrangements throughout the day. Hokki Stools provide opportunity for students to move into different seating arrangements quickly and easily. The students form partnerships and groups for reading and writing workshop, as well as math practice and game playing. They will also be beneficial for students working on a countertop computer.

Movement stools are essential in a classroom where moving provides opportunities to engage, focus, and attend to the tasks at hand!
