My Students

I get to work with some amazing students. Sure, they may not be AP students or even the ones that come from the the upper socioeconomic levels but working with these kids is such a delight. As a general education World History, Civics, and Economics teacher it is often difficult to motivate kids who do not share my passion of social sciences. Can you blame them? When some of my kids come to school concerned about where they will sleep at night, learning about Peter the Great doesn't sound so great. However, the personality that they bring to the classroom ensures that every day is memorable. These kids are special, and they deserve to learn in an environment that is as memorable as them.

My Project

Classroom education is a topic of constantly changing ideas. Everyday we develop new ideas that innovate the way we teach students. However, upon walking into my classroom today I noticed that the rows my students sit in, do not reflect the changing concepts in education. Frequently, students need to have the opportunity to work together in a collaborative setting.

Flexible seating will allow my students to grow collaboratively, socially, and serve to engage my students further in the content.

These student desks will allow me to have my students in rows, but then quickly have them get into group pods when needed. Having their tray attached will help to make them even that more flexible. We can break them up into groups and students will be able to take their desks and chairs into the hallway, roll them outside, or to other classrooms. The possibilities are endless. Please consider helping to make this possible for my students.
