My Students

Every child has the ability to go above and beyond what is expected of them. In order to do so though I believe it is crucial to provide them with the necessary tools to learn in the best way that is possible. For each student that may look different and I strive to help them see it is okay to learn in your own way.

My class consists of 22 outstanding leaders and thinkers.

Each and every one of them are so amazing. They are sweet, thoughtful, kind, strong, and the list could go on and on. All of these kids try so hard every single day when they show up. Therefore, I want them to know I see the effort they are putting forth and I want to show them I also am constantly trying to find new and innovative ways to help them learn.

My Project

I believe in providing my students with the choice of how they learn best. As an adult we learn our different ways we learn and it helps us develop and grow even more. Why not allow that for our students NOW?

Every human being needs to move around and release their wiggles.

I want to instill a mindset for my students that wiggling WHILE learning is OK. Movement when learning can increase their capacity to learn even.

With your money, you would be helping grow my selection of flexible seating options for my students. The wobble stools and lap desks are just two of the many ways I plan to help my students with their wiggles. We had previously earned a variety of seats but I want to expand our collection of options!

Please consider donating to my future learners and our future leaders of the world.
