My Students

Every day, I get the privilege of working with some of the most caring and inquisitive students who come together from all walks of life to learn. The students at our school represent the entire world and because of that, I feel we provide not only a traditional education based on knowledge from books, but also a social education where they learn acceptance and empathy from those who are different from them.

My students come to school every day with a desire to learn and to share their experiences and questions with myself and one another.

Together we grow not only in what we know but also as human beings as we explore the many topics that are a part of our curriculum and our everyday lives as citizens of a thriving urban community.

My Project

Just as we teachers update the books in our library, we also need to reflect on the physical space we make available to our students. After observing the way my students learn best it has become increasingly obvious that I need to find more ways to help them get up and out of their traditional seats and into options that appeal to them.

This project will allow my students the ability to choose from a variety of seating options that speak to them, while still allowing them the flexibility to work in groups or on their own.

Please consider a donation to help bring flexible seating into our classroom to enhance our learning.
