My Students

Although I'm biased, I think my students are the best around! I teach at a public school in the heart of Dallas, Texas. My classroom is a melting pot of cultures and socioeconomic statuses and it is a joy to watch them learn from and respect each other.

My students crave knowledge and always tell me, "Thank you for helping our brains grow." I am hoping that through funding this project, their knowledge and joy for learning will continue to increase.

My Project

Kids in kindergarten love to constantly be on the move! These seating options will allow my students to move around while still learning. I love that flexible seating gives my students voice in their learning and helps me individualize my teaching practices to every students need.

I teach little minds who are going to become movers and shakers and they need the opportunity to get those moves and shakes out in the classroom too!

The wobble stools and inflatable chairs will allow them to move around while still working at their desk, the cushions can be used on their chairs or on the carpet, and the tepee will give them a cozy place to read or calm down when they get upset.

I can't wait to see my kids eyes light up knowing that its okay to move around sometimes as long as they are still learning.
